Lavender & Honey Sparkling Lemonade has the subtle sweetness of golden honey, tart and refreshing lemony zest, gentle floral notes, and the perfect amount of bubbly sparkle!

Spring is in the air. Flowers are blooming, leaves are budding on the trees, and the days are getting longer! (Which is my favorite part!)
Spring is time to renew, refresh, and clean out your closet. Ever year I try to go through my wardrobe, with a determined effort to get rid of stuff I don’t wear. It never seems to work. There is always some reason to hold onto that pilly sweater (but it so comfy), or that pair of pants (that I will surely fit into this year!). Right!? Well, at least I try!
For me its also time to clean up my diet. I know everyone jumps on the Whole 30 deal in the winter, but not me. During the colder months I like to indulge in a little too much sugar, and love my comfort foods. But once it starts to get warm I want to eat refreshing, lighter, and healthier fare like salads, fruits, smoothies, and cool refreshing drinks.
This Lavender & Honey Sparkling Lemonade is everything you want in a spring beverage. It has the perfect balance of tart and sweet, and has a hint of relaxing lavender. Not to mention the bubbles- they make this drink!
If you are hosting Easter brunch this year, this Honey & Lavender Sparking Lemonade will be a huge hit with your guests, and its so easy to make. Serve it in campaign flutes if you want to get super fancy! You can even make the lemon concentrate the night before and add the soda water right before you are ready to serve. Some other great recipes for Easter or any Spring-day brunch are my Asparagus & Hashbrown Egg Casserole (another super easy dish), or if you are looking to satisfy your sweet tooth Cinnamon Bun Pancakes are also an excellent choice.
