If the sweltering heat has got you down I, Ashley, this customizable, easy lavender lemonade recipe will pick you right back up!

When looking for new cocktail creations, I love to stroll the farmers market to get inspiration. Summertime is by far my favorite time to gather local fruits and vegetables for both cocktails and meals.

I like to focus on using in-season ingredients which are SO much more flavorful, aromatic and vibrant at their peak, and with a little help from my willing husband, I came up with a winning combo: pear and lavender!

The combo of pear and lavender is not something I have tried before in a cocktail, but I can now attest that they are in fact quite a pair!

Crisp, sweet pears and soothing, floral lavender are meant to be. When you add them to tart lemons and add in a splash of vodka for good measure, it makes one lip-smacking lavender lemonade recipe for hanging in the Summer sun!

On the flip side, you can skip the cocktail for a mocktail and easily make this into a healthy drink recipe with fresh lemons and fresh lavender culinary lavender…

For recreating this recipe, take not that the pinch of salt really balances out the tart lemon and the sweet lavender simple syrup and even makes the sugar seem sweeter.

The pears add a lot of natural sweetness as well which cuts down on the need for too much added sugar to the lemonade which makes it a healthier option but totally up to you!

In that case, go ahead and have two, right?! Here’s how to make your own…
