Lavender Mint Meyer Lemonade a Refreshing Summer Drink

I’ve fallen in love with a new drink this summer – Lavender Mint Meyer Lemonade. It’s been unbelievably hot and sunny in Provence, pretty much non-stop. So this weather is a perfect time to sip while sitting in the shade, listening to cicadas while enjoying a gentle breeze. This lemonade is very refreshing and I am sure it has healing properties, I am certain of it ;)

Cuisine French, Provencal
Servings 4 people


  • 1/2 - 1 cup Lavender Honey
  • 5 cups Water
  • 1-2 tbsp Dried Culinary Lavender from Sault is the best
  • 1 cup Fresh-Squeezed Meyer Lemon Juice strained
  • Fresh Mint Ice Cubes


  • Bring 2 1/2 cups water to boil in a medium pan
  • Remove from heat and add honey, stirring to dissolve
  • Add the lavender to the honey water, cover, and let steep at least 20 minutes or to taste.
  • Strain mixture and discard lavender. Pour into a pitcher .
  • Add a few large sprigs of mint and muddle a little bit
  • Add lemon juice and another 2 1/2 cups of cold water and stir
  • Refrigerate until ready to use and serve in glasses with lots of ice!


I use less honey as I prefer mine hardly sweet, so use as much as you want to taste. Lavender honey is a wonderful addition, but use any honey you like. And for those more adventurous, this is quite nice with a little splash of gin!
