Lavender Limeade

Where floral tones meet citrus and tart, this recipe is the perfect taste of summer! It's super easy, kid-friendly and the perfect crowd pleaser for your next barbecue! If you want to spice things up, it goes perfectly with my favorite, Saint Germain elderflower liqueur...And if you want to get extra spicy, go ahead pour a little Titos with it. For a standard cup, I recommend adding 1.5 oz of Vodka and 1 oz of St. Germaine. Cheers!
