    Very pronounced lavender flavor with a pretty pink color!! My kitchen smelled like aromatherapy during and afterwards! I used dried organic culinary lavender (which I ordered over the internet). It seemed that the lavender flavor was even more pronounced the following day. To make 1 cup of lemon juice I used about 7 lemons.  -  04 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have made a similar recipe and it turned out great.I used it at a party and it really was a hit.  -  25 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is way too much sugar. I had to fill the rest of the 2 qt pitcher up to dilute it and it's still way too sugary. Great concept, though. I used lavender leaves instead of flowers and 1/4 cup reconstituted lemon juice since I had no fresh on hand. Next time, I think I'll cut the sugar in half, add a little more lemon juice, and enough water to fill a 2 qt pitcher.  -  29 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
