Lavender Lemonade

4 tbsps (1/4 cup) culinary lavender*

2 cups boiling water

2/3 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)

2 cups cold water

* Culinary lavender is lavender harvested for the purposes of cooking/eating. Please don’t buy the perfumed air-freshening kind because that is going to be utterly gross. Steep the lavender in 2 cups of boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the lavender. Place the lavender tea and the sugar in a small saucepan and set over high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves (you don’t have to put it over heat, but I do this because I’m impatient and want the sugar to dissolve faster and completely). Remove from heat and let cool to warm. Stir in the lemon juice. Stir in the cold water. Add more to taste. I prefer to keep mine on the concentrated side because I like to mix it with seltzer water when I serve it. Serve over ice. Makes about 6-8 cups depending on how dilute you want it.

My friend actually made lavender lemonade before and it’s delicious. Not sure if this is the same recipe, but stillllll

Today at school, I was in a class of twenty with only five of those being girls. You’d think the male teacher would understand that we have been treated awfully by our male peers and give us a sliver of respect. But no, he treats us worse than all of them combined. And that’s when he actually acknowledges us. I told him that he was being sexist and mysogynistic, but he disagreed. If you guys would be so kind as to signal boost this, I’d like to show him the notes to prove to him that he is unfit as a teacher.

What will you miss about playing Lana?

"Gosh, just everything — everything from her plucky quality to her incredible strength. I don’t think Lana ever gave up. Ever. She still hasn’t, even in the finale. I think that’s an incredible quality to have as a person: to have perseverance with a dash of hope. And I think I really learned things from Lana. She’ll be in my heart forever. I never really cried at the end of a job — other than, "I’m gonna miss you" [to the cast] — but I never cried from knowing how much I was going to miss the character I was playing. It was like she died. That was it. It’s over. That was heartbreaking." - Sarah Paulson.
