Everyone loves some fresh squeezed lemonade, why not kick it up a notch?! This 5 Ingredient Lavender Sage Lemonade Recipe really isn’t too hard, as long as you don’t mind squeezing some fresh lemons.

Here’s how to make this 5 Ingredient Lavender Sage Lemonade Recipe:
1. Start by making the syrup. In a small saucepan, add in water, sugar, the sage leaves and lavender buds. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Once it starts boiling, immediately remove from heat and let cool.
2. While the syrup is cooling, make the lemon juice. We use a citrus squeezer, it will make your life so much easier!
3. Now, in a pitcher, add in the rest of the sugar, then the lemon juice, water and the syrup. You can strain the lavender and sage from the syrup if you want to but we think it adds a lot of nice flavor and a looks good in the glass for garnish.
4. Mix thoroughly!
5. Add ice to a glass and pour in the lemonade mixture. Garnish with more lavender, sage, lemons and a cute straw.
