Lavender Citrus Cooler


Happy Friday!!

As citrus season winds down I couldn’t help but share one more refreshing idea.  As the days pass the once 18lb bags of oranges stacked ready to be swooped up are replaced with  single citrus by the dollar.  Citrus season is one of my favorite seasons, but with the end of one season another quickly blesses us.  A simple syrup is infused with lavender buds, allow to cool and swirl in fresh orange juice for a colorful glass of citrus shine! Enjoy!

    We’re finally getting the weather worthy of such refreshing drink. Now I just need to get my hands on some good oranges :)

    This looks so refreshing–yum!

    The oranges on my trees are just now getting good. I had to stare at them all winter while they were sour and wish I could eat them. But now they’re finally ready! Yippee! :)
