3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)

Prep time: 20 minutes

Wash and rinse lavender.
To make simple syrup, heat sugar and water in a small saucepan until dissolved.
Mix in fresh lemon juice. Depending on the types of lemons used (Meyer lemons are less tart than regular lemons) and adjust proportion for own sweetness preference.
Add in lavender.
Steeped lavender and chill.

Or if you prefer no sugar added.

Just steeped lavender with the lemons and chilled! Very refreshing and relaxing!
