Lavender Lemonade Pops

Lavender Lemonade Pops

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons lavender, divided

juice from 6 lemons (also save zest)

¾ cup sugar, divided

1 ¼ cup sparkling water (I used orange flavored)

1 cup water

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 teaspoon hibiscus petals (optional)

Method:

*Add water, ½ cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon lavender to small saucepan. Stir. Heat over high until boiling. Drop to low. Let simmer over low for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Let lavender steep until syrup is cool.

*Zest and juice lemons (some pulp is good).  Mix lemon juice, 1 teaspoon lemon zest (save remaining zest for another recipe!), remaining sugar, and sparkling water. Add strained lavender simple syrup. Stir to combine. Fill popsicle molds half full. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon lavender (split between all molds) and add 1 hibiscus petal. Freeze until frozen. Add remaining lemonade mixture. Freeze until slushy (approx. 1 hour). Add sticks. Freeze until frozen completely. Enjoy!
