Chamomile Lemonade

Part herbal tea, part lemonade. Enter chamomile lemonade, a delightful twist on a summer staple that offers both refreshment and a touch of calming tranquility. Sure, classic lemonade is always a hit, but what if you could elevate it with a hint of floral serenity?

Why you’ll love chamomile lemonade:

Chamomile lemonade takes the classic sweet and tart combination of lemonade and adds a subtle floral twist. Chamomile flowers boast a hint of apple and a touch of honey-like sweetness, perfectly complementing the citrusy punch of lemonade.

Beyond its delightful flavor, chamomile offers a surprising benefit. This calming herb is known for its soothing properties, making chamomile lemonade a perfect drink to unwind after a long day or to enjoy on a hot afternoon. Serve it with our chamomile tea cookies or strawberry sponge cake with chamomile whipped cream.

It’s adaptable, made with chamomile tea and fresh lemons. We like to sweeten our chamomile lemonade with all honey, but you can also add some chamomile simple syrup, regular granulated sugar, or a mixture of all three! I made this recipe for our friends over at the herbal academy!

Ingredients:

Making chamomile lemonade is surprisingly simple. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 8 cups water
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons dried chamomile flowers or three chamomile tea bags
  • about 8 large lemons, squeezed
  • ice cubes

How to make it:

  • Squeeze all of your lemons into a large jar or pitcher. Strain to remove seeds.
  • Bring 8 cups of water to a boil.
  • Add your chamomile tea to your pitcher by infusing it with a tea strainer or adding it to your tea bags.
  • Pour in your boiling water.
  • Let chamomile tea steep for a few minutes, then remove the tea from the pitcher.
  • Let lemonade cool slightly and add in your honey.
  • Chill and serve over ice.

Chamomile Lemonade Variations:

  • For a fizzy twist, top your chamomile lemonade with sparkling water.
  • Muddle fresh berries like strawberries or raspberries into your lemonade for a burst of fruity flavor.
  • Add a sprig of fresh mint or lavender for an additional layer of herbal complexity.
