Blueberry Lavender Thyme Lemonade

August 21, 2022

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 pounds of medium-sized lemons, 2 reserved for slicing
  • 4 cups of water
  • 3 tea bags of Blueberry Lavender Tea by The Republic of Tea
  • 4 cups of water
  • 4 sprigs of Thyme

Simple Syrup:

  • 2 cups of white cane sugar
  • 2 cups of water

DIRECTIONS:

    1) With a juicer (hand or electric), juice most of your lemons.  Reserve two lemons for slicing.  Set aside.

    2) In a small sauce pan, over medium-low heat, combine the sugar and two cups of water to make a simple syrup.  Stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Remove from the heat and let cool.

    3) In a larger pot, bring four cups of water to a boil.  Add thyme into the water.  Once the water begins to boil, remove from heat.  Add three tea bags into the water and seep.  Remove the tea bags after 10 minutes, and let the tea cool.

    4) In a large pitcher, add lemon juice and tea.  Add simple syrup to taste.  *I used the entire amount of simple syrup for my recipe, but adjust to the level of sweetness you would like.

    5) Slice the remaining two lemons and add to your lemonade.  Stir and enjoy over ice.

    Tip: To make a cocktail with this lemonade, rim a glass with My Fabulous Food's alaea sea salt.  Add 6 oz of lemonade to a glass and 1 oz of rum.  Enjoy!
