Homemade Lemonade

Lately I've been thinking a lot about how much I loved being a server and bartender and how nice and stress free it would be to just make people drinks all day. But before I get serious about a career as an amateur mixologist, I figured I should try my hand at a really simple homemade summer classic- lemonade.

This first batch was sweetened with cane sugar simple syrup. I attempted to infuse the simple syrup with lavender to imitate my favorite drink (yup, you guessed it, lavender lemonade) from The Grove in San Francisco but there's not an inch of lavender flavor in my version. I'll have try a different tactic on the next go-round. I didn't use any special lemons this time either, just cheap store bought ones because I just wanted to conquer the basics first. And, if I do say so myself, this lemonade is not too shabby.
