We love honey as much as the next person, and we have developed a list of our favorite recipes that use honey. This specific recipe is particularly suited to the gentle and delicate layers a light golden summer honey has to offer.
Lavender Honey Lemonade:
1 cup raw honey
3 cups water
1 tbs lavender buds
1 cup fresh lemon juice

Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add the lavender. Set aside and to steep for about 15-20 minutes. Strain the lavender out. Add the honey to the warm tea and stir to allow the honey to dissolve. Add lemon juice and the remaining water to taste. Stir well and refrigerate. Feel free to garnish with fresh sprigs of lavender. Drink and enjoy!
