Welcome to Coconut Lavender Lemonade.. and say Goodbye to all other things you had planned for today!
This blend is not only more refreshing than anything you have heard of before, but each ingredient is filled with antioxidants and vitamins and vitality!
And the taste... my, oh, my...
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 9 lemons)
1 3/4 cups sugar
8 cups coconut water
4 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
3 tbsp dried lavender
A few drops of violet food coloring (optional)
Combine the ingredients in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan.
Bring to a boil on high heat, and boil for 1 minute.
Remove from the heat, cover, and let rest to a syrup for 20 minutes.
Strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove the lavender, add the food coloring (used to give the lemonade a purple color).
Set syrup aside to cool.
Place lemon juice, sugar, coconut water, and water into a pitcher and shake or stir vigorously until all the sugar is dissolved. Shaking is preferred is possible as it aerates the lemonade.
Pour 1/2 of the lavender syrup into the pitcher and stir. You can add more or less lavender syrup to your personal taste.
