There’s nothing you might crave more on a hot summer day than relaxing at home with an iced cold beverage in hand. If it’s an Insta-worthy one, even better. That’s why having a few lavender drink recipes on YouTube on the ready is the way to go. You and your roomies can mix together some delicious lavender lemonade or lavender rum cocktails to sip while enjoying the porch and embracing the rest of this beautiful season.
Not only is lavender delicious, but its vibrant violet hue makes it gorgeous, too. You can’t help but snap a million pics when you’ve got a lavender drink in hand, so you’ll have plenty to share on Instagram with these eight lavender recipes. From this list, you can find a beverage for just about any occasion. Enjoy an iced lavender latte first thing in the morning with your picture-perfect avocado toast. Then, enjoy lavender lemonade with lunch when you’re lounging by the pool or chilling in a shady hammock. To wrap up the day, toast to a perfect evening with a lavender cocktail (if you’re 21 or up) during a romantic garden dinner with your partner. There are tons of fun sips to be had, so it’s time to start mixing.
