So, if you’re attempting to hold onto summer as long as possible this time around, this one is for you.

Or perhaps you’re just trying to enjoy your Friday to the max.

Either way, I don’t blame you.

While the Strawberry Lavender Agua Fresca is perfect for a homemade dinner, it’s also especially fun when you’re inviting guests over. It’s different, without being too experimental. It’s a sweet, fruity sip with a (somewhat) surprise floral punch. I say somewhat because lavender is in the name of the drink, so that may tip you off. But, you get it.

You may be thinking to yourself, strawberry and lavender? Well, I promise you that it works. You taste the strawberries, first and foremost, then the lavender buds sneak their way in at the end for a fresh floral finish.

It almost sounds like I’m describing wine, which if this was wine, would also sound entirely delicious. In fact, I kept this one pretty free and clear from added sugars. So, it’s a naturally sweet sip that isn’t loaded with added sugars like sodas and mocktails.

This recipe makes about 4 glasses, but you can certainly play around with the ratios. If you find that you want less lavender flavor, cut the buds down to 1 tablespoon instead of 2. Same with the water, if you want a thicker agua fresca, just cut down the still and sparkling water.
