It's easy to whip up: All you'll need is some Beezy Beez honey, lemons, sparkling water, and lavender.

Either way, here's how to make some delicious, honey lavender sparkling lemonade.
Why lavender lemonade?
Making lemonade in and of itself is very refreshing, especially in the summer months. However, adding lavender to it is a whole new ball game. Lavender is perfect for stress relief and relaxation. This makes it a perfect addition to any summer drink when you just want to unwind! Make this drink whenever you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed out for a little boost. Or, serve it at a party to de-stress your guests to better enjoy each other's company. Adding Beezy Beez raw honey to it will only further sweeten the health benefits of this drink, as honey is full of antioxidants and minerals.
- 6 lemons
- 1/3 cup of Beezy Beez raw honey
- 1 liter sparkling water
- 2 to 3 tablespoons lavender buds
- Juice the lemons and remove the seeds. You should get about 1/3 cup of lemon juice. Combine the lemon juice and honey in a high-speed blender and beat until honey has fully dissolved and the concentrate is frothy.
- Divide the concentrate evenly into 4 glasses, or pour it into a pitcher. Sprinkled the lavender buds over the concentrate, then fill the glass/pitcher with sparkling water. The longer you let the lavender infuse into the drink, the stronger the flavor will be. Serve and enjoy!
