How to make it
- Some people said they thought the drink was not sweet enough.
- I believe this is mainly because they are used to (or should I say, are addicted to) the sharper sweet taste of table sugar.
- Agave nectar has a smooth sweet taste which allows the flavor of lavender and lemon to dominate.
- However, the size and juiciness of the lemons can make a difference in the tartness of the drink, as well as the fact that being organic makes them taste more "lemony".
- So the amount of agave nectar may need to be adjusted to taste.
- Yields a little over one quart
