Lavender Lemonade Spritzer

When planning this year’s 4th of July festivities, I decided to serve lemonade as a refreshing beverage, but I wanted to make this summer staple special.  I decided to use lavender simple syrup to add an herbal note, which proved to be a wonderful combination.  This lemonade is excellent mixed with bourbon or vodka as a cocktail or as a non-alcoholic drink that everyone can enjoy.

 

2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 8-10 lemons)

1 recipe Lavender Simple Syrup

1 cup vodka or bourbon

6 cups sparkling water such as S. Pellegrino

 

Pour the ingredients into a pitcher and stir to combine.  If you prefer to make this a non-alcoholic beverage, substitute 1 additional cup sparkling water for the alcohol.

Serves 8
