A simple lavender iced tea takes a classic spring drink to a gourmet refresher with subtle floral notes.
Spring and summer time means slower days spent relaxing outside in the backyard or lounging on the deck.
I love pairing fresh summer herbs with fruit in desserts but I also love the flavors herbs can add to beverages. The addition of watermelon along with rosemary adds complexity to classic lemonade when I make Rosemary Infused Watermelon Lemonade. When I’m looking for a more grown up beverage, I use basil with strawberries in an icy Strawberry Basil Margarita.
This lovely Lavender Iced Tea has a bit of lavender to add some light floral notes then it’s barely sweetened with just a touch of honey for an icy cool summer drink. The flavor of the Lavender Rose Infused Honey I made was the inspiration behind this floral ice tea.
