Where to find lavender for lavender lemonade:
Sourcing dried lavender is simple! Simply buy some food grade lavender. I love this brand when I don't have any in my garden. If you're curious about the best edible flowers you can grow at home, read my post on the best edible flowers to grow in your garden.
If the thought of crafting your own simple syrup is daunting, fret not, my love. You can always purchase it instead. Personally, I adore this particular brand as it lacks the artificial, garish purple coloring that plagues other options. But if you prefer to bypass simple syrup altogether, might I suggest indulging in the delicate flavor of lavender-infused honey? It is divine.
