Things I can’t get enough of during the summer: grilled okra, fresh corn, Rainier cherries, popsicles, homemade lemonade.

I’m generally not a beverage person.  We don’t drink soda or juice.  I’ll occasionally have a mug of tea in the winter if I’m sick.  I haven’t poured myself a glass of milk in years.  My husband and I joke that we only drink two things: water and alcohol, but it’s a joke that is pretty much true.

Except when it comes to outdoor picnics and parties and fresh squeezed lemonade.  I just can’t say no.  That sweet-tart lemony combination is everything that is right with the world on a sweaty, hot summer day.  As soon as the temperature starts to rise, all I want is citrus. (Also, how pretty is that lavender infused simple syrup lemon juice combination above? ↑↑↑)

I’ve shared a blueberry basil lemonade recipe before that is my favorite summer dinner party beverage (and even more so with a generous splash of bourbon!).  But for a recent neighborhood picnic, I wanted to try something a little different.  The lavender-lemon pairing has been on my mind ever since I made this lemon lavender bundt cake, so I jumped at the chance to turn it into lavender lemonade.
