Summer's Zest in a Glass: The Perfect Herb-Infused Lemonade Recipe

This single-serving style recipe may be scaled up for parties and other social functions. Since it only uses three core ingredients, it is simple to make, and your infusion choices consist of tincture or sugar. 

While this lemonade is made for summer, it can be enjoyed during any season of the year, and if you want to spice things up even more, you can add a touch of vodka. 

It should also be noted that this recipe is dairy and gluten-free, making it perfect for vegans.



Here’s a recipe for making herbal-infused lemonade

  • Herb-Infused Sugar: This sugar has outstanding properties, but you can also use a herbal infused 
  • Lemon juice that is freshly squeezed: While non-fresh lemons can be used, lemons that have been freshly squeezed will provide the best taste. Furthermore, they are full of potassium, folate, and vitamin C, boosting your immune system.
  • Granulated white sugar: This type of sugar is sought after since it dissolves rapidly in water, resulting in a sweet and smooth flavor.

Steps for Making It

  • Squeeze your fresh lemons until you have lemon juice.
  • Place this lemon juice into a big jar, preferably made from aluminum. 
  • Add granulated white sugar and herb-infused sugar (decarb all dried herbs before mixing them with sugar). 
  • Add water that has been filtered and then stir it thoroughly. 
  • Toss in some ice, then stir it a second time. 
  • Garnish the beverage using herbal leaves and a wedge made from lemon and serve.

Alternative Infusion Choices

When it comes to anything edible, there are multiple options for infusing it. For this specific drink, herbal sugar is highly recommended, but some people have also experimented with tinctures. If you decide to go this route, be sure the tincture has an alcohol base.

The reason is that if it is oil-based, the mixture won’t work as well. You can use herbal-infused tinctures since both have been proven to work. But you must be mindful of the level since you’ll probably add a certain remnant of higher-proof alcohol. 

Finally, thoroughly mix the water and granulated sugar to prevent a gritty texture.

Storage Directions

If you’ve made more lemonade than you can drink in one sitting, you’ll want to store it for later use. 

This particular recipe can be placed in a fridge for as long as seven days, and you can also freeze extra lemon juice, which will make it readily available in the future when you want to make the beverage again.

How does the Botanical Infuser Work?

A Botanical Infuser can be a game-changer when making infused lemonade. This innovative device allows you to extract the flavors and benefits of various botanicals, including herbs, fruits, and spices. 

The herbal infuser comes equipped with an industrial-grade stainless-steel blade and laboratory standard temperature control to give you a high-quality herbal-infused oil every time. 

ONGROK’s herbal extractor includes incremental cycles ranging from 1–8 hours, depending on whether you’re using it as an oil, tincture, or butter maker. 

Is the Botanical Infuser Versatile? 

This machine can also be used for various home and kitchen uses. 

Make your potent essential oils using herbs like rosemary and lavender, or try creating tinctures, balms, botanical lotions, and more.

What is a Decarboxylator Machine?

Decarboxylation plays a crucial role When infusing your lemonade with herbs. Using a Decarboxylator Machine, you can activate the flavors in your herbs before infusing them into your lemonade.

A decarboxylation machine is a device that removes the carboxyl group from an organic compound. 

The process of decarboxylation is often used in organic chemistry. Decarboxylation can also be used to make food taste better or to make it easier to digest.
