Ingredients

  • 1 part Water 1 cup is a good starting point
  • 1 part Sugar Supposedly you need 1 part sugar. But when using 1 cup of water, I like to stick to 1 tablespoon of sugar. We could all use a little less sugar in our lives.
  • 1 Lemon
  • Herbs Fresh preferably
  • Flowers Dried flowers work better. Ensure they are edible.

Instructions

Simple Syrup

  • Boil the sugar and water together.

Infusion

  • Add your herbs and/or flowers to the boil.
  • Let the herbs and/or flowers steep for 10 minutes. Remove and discard.

Lemonade

  • Squeeze lemon juice into a glass. Add water.
  • Pour in some infused simple syrup until you get the sweetness you want. Stir gently.
