Lavender Lemonade

15g lavender heads
500ml boiling water
150g sugar
1.2 litres cold water
5 ripe lemons

Put the flower heads into a saucepan and pour over the boiling water. Bring to the boil again and simmer for a minute or two. Turn off the heat and leave for 10 minutes to steep. Strain. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Add the cold water. Squeeze the lemons directly into the pan – watch it turn pink! – then strain again if you want rid of any pips and pith. Taste to see how concentrated the flavour is, and when serving add more water to dilute to taste. Serve in a glass jug to make the most of the pretty colour. Add plenty of ice and stir with thick dried lavender stalks.
