Lemons, sliced for garnish
Make a lavender infused syrup by combining the dried lavender with a tablespoon of sugar and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat on medium until the sugar dissolves and the water takes on a lavender hue. We added a little food coloring for a stronger purple.
Next, make or acquire your lemonade. You can use your favorite fresh lemonade recipe or source from your local grocery.
Fill a collins glass with ice, and pour in 2-4 oz of vodka. Then, fill the glass a little over halfway with lemonade. Add 2 oz of your lavender syrup, top with coconut water and garnish with a lemon wheel.
