There are two types of people in this world: the lunchtime beverage adventurers, and the “water’s fine, thanks” types. I’ve always been the latter, but now that the blazing Texas heat has me craving something a little more exciting, I set out to create three lemonade recipes that are a step up from the classic variety, inspired by the season’s amazing herbs. My advice? Make a big batch of whichever sounds good to you, then keep it chilled in a pitcher in your refrigerator all week long. When lunch time rolls around, you’ll be glad you have something other than water to quench your thirst.

Rosemary Lemonade.

This rosemary lemonade was my personal favorite. Handpicked rosemary sprigs added the perfect garden flavor to our sweet homemade lemonade, and if you’ve never made your own simple syrup this is the perfect time to try it out. Just follow the directions below!

Lavender Lemonade.

Next up is a fan favorite, lavender lemonade. We used honey in the simple syrup, which perfectly complemented the lavender buds from Camille’s garden. If you’re looking to add that purple hue to your batch of lemonade, just squeeze in a couple drops of blue and red food coloring.

Ginger Mint Lemonade.

Last but not least, this ginger mint lemonade recipe was inspired by my favorite cocktail of the moment, a Moscow Mule. When creating this delicious recipe at home, remember that a little ginger goes a long way!

    These all look so refreshing. One of my favorite hotels serves a cocktail called the Skinny Dip. It has rosemary lemonade, gin, and St. Germain and quickly became my go-to summer cocktail.
