    Summer Refresher: Sparkling Lavender Lemonade!

    LAVENDER LEMONADE

    New favorite beverage alert! This recipe was inspired by oh so delicioso's, with just a couple simple tweaks!

    I've swapped white sugar for coconut, skipped the dye, and created a more diluted concentrate, as I found the original recipe too sweet for my taste. The addition of sparkling water (if you're into that) is genius, and I think it'd be fun to try this with other oils, too!

    It's super easy and fast to whip this up at home - and (bonus!) it's a concentrate, so it'll last you quite a while!

    INGREDIENTS:
    1C coconut sugar
    4C water (1C + 3C)
    1C lemon juice, freshly squeezed
    2 drops doTERRA Lavender

    DIRECTIONS:

    • Create a simple syrup by combining coconut sugar and 1C water over low-medium heat, stirring until sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp.
    • Add 3C water, 1C lemon juice, and 2 drops doTERRA Lavender to simple syrup. 
    • Serve chilled, mixed with sparkling or still water. (I like a 1:3 ratio, 1 part simple syrup to 3 parts sparkling water.)
