Lavender can beat up Grey

February 17, 2012

Or at least it can in this case.

I feel like almost everyone I know thoroughly enjoys when the climate outside starts dipping lower and lower then encourages ice glazed windshields or barren, skeletal trees that look as if they might slash you with their knobbly limbs.  Sure there’s a certain appeal to a White Winter Wonderland…the part that conjures up Peppermint Kissed Candies or Pastries and Pumpkin Spice this and Pumpkin Spice, but for the whole, I’m just gonna go ahead and put it out there that I do not like Winter one bit.  My favorite Season is Autumn and even then, I wouldn’t dare give up my flip flops for anything.  I’m a flip flops and tank top kinda gal.  Winter, in my head, looks like Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.”  For those rough Winter Days, it’s nice to take solace in a refreshing treat that reminds you that those Scorching Sexy Summer Nights aren’t too far off.



Here’s what you’ll need to start being Sexy, lol (I’m jk) ^.^

  • 10-12 Lemons (reserve some to garnish and obtain the Peel of one)
  • 2 c Sugar (similarly, you can also sub with Splenda, Agave, Stevia, etc) + 2 c Water + Lemon Peel
    • Heat until all of the Sugar has dissolved
  • 3 tb dried Lavender Flowers + 3 c Water
    • Heat for about 10 min on Medium

Notes:
-Meyer Lemons are faaabulous for this
-Use Cold, Filtered Water (especially with something like this that will be a nice highlight Beverage)
-Cool the Simple Syrup/Lavender infused Water before adding to your Lemon
-I would personally aim at polishing off this Pitcher with Friends and Family the day of.  I suppose that’s where the “freshly squeezed” bit comes from. 

*I purchased my Lavender from a Natural Food Store in Bulk.  Mine came out to about $1.20 for the bit I used for this Lemonade.  You can also purchase Lavender online too.


Day Dreaming about a Summer Oasis,


Love,


Your cold Squishy Monster =D
