Last summer my daughter spent an entire day with her friend at the swimming pool. She created a very delicious and fresh drink that is the perfect summer pool beverage, so today I thought I would share this drink with you as well.

Making this lemon lavender lemonade is super easy and only takes just a few simple ingredients. The lavender can be found at any specialty store (I found mine at World Market), but I also noticed that TJ Maxx, Amazon, Ross, and other stores like that carry it as well. Your grocer might even have it.

The other ingredients are as simple as lemons, lemonade concentrate, coconut milk, and lemons. That's it! This drink would go amazing with this delicious Earl Grey Lavender Cheesecake bites.

Now– let's learn how to make this delicious summer drink.

How to Make Coconut Lavender Lemonade

To start, the first thing we need to do is to make lavender simple syrup. This is very easy — equal parts sugar and water and then 2 teaspoons of dried lavender.

We used 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water along with the 2 teaspoons of lavender. The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons, but we wanted a light flavor of lavender and not a pungent one. If you want more lavender flavor, just add more dried lavender.

Cook over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves.

Set it aside while you make the lemonade.

Making the Lemonade

For the lemonade portion, we used 1 can of coconut milk, 1 can of frozen lemonade concentrate, 2 lemons, and 2 cups of water. We placed all of this into a container and mixed it up really well.

If this is too tart for you, you can add more water to mellow out the lemon flavor. Here in Kentucky, we like our lemonade to the point that it will make your lips pucker.

Once the simple syrup has cooled down some, strain it to remove the lavender leaves. Now, pour it into your container with your lemonade mixture.

To achieve that perfect lilac color, just add a drop or two of purple food coloring.

That's it! Mix it well before serving each time. Pour over ice and serve with fresh mint leaves, sliced lemon, or sprinkled dried lavender.
