    Toss a sprig of lavender in when you're making a simple syrup for your lemonade. Mix one part water, one part lavender-infused simple syrup, two parts fresh lemon juice. Taste it and adjust to your liking (everyone has slightly different preferences, and it's impossible to give an exact recipe since every lemon is different depending on type, the weather that season, freshness, etc.).

      If you have to use dried lavender, make sure you are purchasing something that is ok to eat. Some lavender sold for potpourri use has been adulterated with lavender oil, etc and is not safe to eat.
