Island Lavender Lemonade

Lavender Lemonade
Throwing a backyard shindig in summer calls for a drink bursting with delicious, tropical flavours. Our island lavender lemonade is a great thirst quencher and will delight your guests with its beautiful shade of purple.


  • 1 ½ cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 ¾ cups of sugar
  • 8 cups of pure coconut water
  • 5 ½ cups of water
  • 3 tablespoons of dried lavender
  • Several drops of violet food colouring
  • Lemon slices to garnish

To Make Lavender Syrup

  1. In a thick-bottomed saucepan, combine 2 cups of sugar, 1 ½ cups of water and the dried lavender.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, leaving for 1 minute before removing from the heat.
  3. Cover and rest for about 20 minutes. This will allow the lavender to release its flavours into the syrup.
  4. Once rested, strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove the lavender.
  5. Add 2-3 drops of the violet food colouring, depending on the desired depth of colour.
  6. Let the syrup cool before placing in an airtight bottle.

Note: Make the lavender syrup before the lemonade mix as it is a vital part of the recipe.

To Make Lemonade

  1. In a large jug, add the lemon juice, coconut water and remaining sugar and water.
  2. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved, or shake in a bottle.
  3. Start to pour splashes of lavender syrup into the lemonade until the desired taste is achieved.
  4. Before serving, stir in ice and lemon slices to garnish.

Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon margo
This watermelon slushy recipe is perfect for both kids and adults! Serve in sugar-rimmed margarita glasses and add garnishes of fresh fruit for a tasty summary drink.


  • 1 large watermelon—peeled, deseeded and cubed
  • ½ cup of soda water or lemonade
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (emit if using lemonade)
  • Watermelon balls for garnish

To Make Watermelon Margaritas

  1. Place watermelon cubes in freezer for about 5-7 hours.
  2. Once frozen, place the watermelon cubes, chosen liquid, lime juice and sugar in a blender and combine until smooth.
  3. If the mixture has gone too runny, place the jug back in the freezer for an hour, stirring at the half-an-hour mark.
  4. Pour into glasses and pop 1 or 2 watermelon balls into each one.

Tip: Instead of a bowl or jug, serve your watermelon margarita mix in the remaining watermelon halves for a unique twist!
