Lavender - Rhubarb Lemonade
8 stalks rhubarb, chopped
1/2 cup dried or 1 cup fresh lavender
8 cups water
1 cup (or more, to taste) sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
carbonated water (optional)
Bring water, rhubarb and lavender to boil in a large pot. Let simmer for about a half hour, then turn of pot and let sit until cool (or until you get tired of waiting). Strain out rhubarb and lavender, and put them in your compost pile. Add 1/2 cup lemon juice and sugar, to taste. Add carbonated water, in any proportion you desire, if you like your lemonade "fizzy". Pour over ice, and serve!
