1 1/2 Cups Lavender Lemonade(see* for recipe)
1 1/2 Cups vodka, chilled very well
3 packets gelatin
You can adjust your vodka/lemonade ratio as you like as long as there is 3 cups total liquid...
Slice lemons in half and carefully scoop out the flesh leaving the peels in tact.
Sprinkle gelatin into chilled vodka and allow to sit for 2 minutes
Pour cold vodka into hot lemonade and stir until all the gelatin is fully dissolved(5 minutes or so) you can add some more fresh lavender buds for a pretty flair if you like.
Pour the liquid into the waiting peels.
Place in the fridge and chill until fully solidified, about 2 hours (faster in the freezer if you have room!)
Slice each half in half and enjoy the wedges!
Juice from the 8-10 lemons(about 2 cups)
1/4 cup fresh lavender buds( you can go plus or minus on these, 1/4 cup is a good ratio IMO)
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
Cold water to taste 4-6 cups
more sugar to taste
In a sauce pan bring lavender, 3 cups water and sugar to a boil.
Boil until it is reduced to 2 1/4 cups liquid. Add sugar , reduce heat and boil gently until the sugar is dissolved and has reduced down close to 2 cups.
Strain out lavender and allow to cool.
Combine syrup with lemon juice and add water and more sugar or lemon juice as you see fit.
