Try This Hot Weather Drink Lavender Lemonade

If there is a drink that defines the best of summer living, it has to be homemade lemonade. And Provencal rosé! So if you are looking for a recipe for a refreshing drink for hot weather, try this lavender lemonade from the Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm.

Dedicated to making quality products from herbs and botanicals, this multi-generational, family-run operation is in British Columbia, Canada. From planting to the final product – the farm operations reflect the McFadden family’s dedication to environmental stewardship, supporting local business and quality production. “We are committed to packaging our products ecofriendly options which can be reused, recycled or composted.”

The Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm grows over 20 herbs and botanicals, including lavender, herbes de Provence (rosemary, thyme, oregano), spearmint, and lemon verbena. At the farm, each year follows a relatively steady cycle from planting to harvest to drying and distilling. As a result, their product line is vast, with over 50 items covering bath and beauty (bath salts, balms, and oils) through culinary (teas and syrups). Order online for shipping across Canada (flat rate shipping $11.95 | free shipping over $75). Alternatively, if you are in the area, stop by as they offer curbside pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays 10 am – 2 pm.
