This “tea-ish” style drink is perfect for a summer afternoon, a brunch, baby or wedding shower. It is refreshing herbal drink that will have everyone asking what it is.
8 cups filtered water
2 tsp powdered stevia
1 tsp lemon zest
1/8 cup dried lavender (or 1/4 cup fresh lavender flowers)
1 cup fresh lemon juice
lemon slices or blueberries (optional)
Combine 4 cups of water, stevia, lavender, and lemon zest in a pan. Bring to a boil and simmer until water turns a light shade of pink – about 10 minutes. Strain sauce and discard flowers.
