1 large cucumber
4 cups ice cubes
1 gallon cold water (tap, filtered, sparkling/mineral, or spring water), your choice*
Few sprigs of mint
1 teaspoon culinary lavender**
* Do not use hot water! Hot water destroys the enzymes and vitamins in fruits and vegetables. Hot water will also make you fruit or vegetables fall apart and look a lot less pretty. So, be sure to use cold water!
**Adding too much lavender to your recipe can be like eating perfume and will make your dish bitter. Because of the strong flavor of lavender, the secret is that a little goes a long way.
Cutting the cucumber rind off into strips makes the ingredients look more sophisticated and also removes the possibility of a waxy taste from the rind. Slice the cucumber thinly.
In a gallon glass pitcher, large beverage dispenser (any large pitcher), add the ice cubes, cucumbers, cold water, mint sprigs, and lavender. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. The flavors will intensify the longer it sits.
May be served up to 3 days as the mint will wilt and turn brown.
In just a few short minutes, you'll be enjoying hot, crumbly scones fresh from your own kitchen!
Lavender Scones are a welcome addition to any social or culinary affair.
Quick and simple to prepare...all you'll need to do is add water, stir, and bake. (Our SECRET TIP: Substitute the water with buttermilk for more moist scones!)
They are spectacular with a little butter and topped with our Lavender Lilikoi Jelly, Lavender Honey, or Lavender Strawberry Syrup.
Serve with Lavender Herb Tea or Lavender-Flavored Coffee.
