This delicious lavender infused, homemade lemonade is given an extra boost with a generous glug of vodka.


  • 6 Fresh Lavender Heads, plus extra to serve
  • 1l (4 cups) Boiling Water
  • 75g (1/3 cup) Granulated Sugar 
  • 2 Large Lemons
  • 10-14 tbsp Vodka


  1. Place the lavender in a small bowl and cover with 250ml (1 cup) of boiling water and set aside to infuse.
  2. Meanwhile, add the rest of the sugar and water to a small saucepan and simmer over a low heat, stirring gently until all the water is disolved. Take off the heat.
  3. Juice the lemons and add the juice to the sugar and water mixture.
  4. Remove the lavender stems and any additional stray pieces from the smaller bowl of water and stir it into the lemon mixture.
  5. Allow to cool, and add the vodka to taste/ personal preference. Enjoy served over ice, and preferably watching the tennis.
