This is a very “tea-party” style drink that is perfect for a summer afternoon, a brunch, baby shower or wedding shower.  It has such a unique taste, everyone will be asking what it is.

8 cups filtered water

2 tsp spoonable stevia

1 tsp lemon zest

1/8 cup dried lavender (or 1/4 cup fresh lavender flowers)

1 cup fresh lemon juice

lemon slices or blueberries (optional)

Combine 4 cups of water, stevia, lavender, and lemon zest in a pan.  Bring to a boil and simmer until water turns a light shade of pink.  (about 10 minutes)  Strain sauce and discard flowers.  Pour into a pitcher and add the lemon juice and remaining water.  Serve over ice with lemon slices or blueberries.
