Lavender & Elderflower Cordial


2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender
1/2 cup sugar
2-1/2 cups water
3 lemons
2 cups water


Combine 2 and a half cups of water, two tablespoons of culinary lavender and half a cup of sugar in a saucepan.
Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for five minutes. Cover the pot and let it stand for at least one hour.

Using a fine sieve, strain the lavender from the liquid. Place the liquid in a large serving jug and discard the lavender.

Juice three lemons into the jug and add an additional two cups of water stirring well to combine.
Chill the lemonade until it is cold and serve with crushed ice and a sprig of Lavender for decoration.
