Honeysuckle lemonade with wildflower syrup

Honeysuckle lemonade, a wildflower drink, is not just refreshing, but also incredibly beneficial to your health. I never noticed there were a lot of honeysuckle bushes right down my block until I began working on this recipe.

Honeysuckle flowers are a staple in any herbal home apothecary and are known for their healing properties. The recipe is quite easy to follow and requires just a few simple ingredients. 

This recipe is made with honeysuckle syrup that contains a lot of honey, so the lemonade has a honey taste. Honey contains glucose which the brain and cells need to function well, so I suggest using syrup with honey instead of sugar.

Healing with Honeysuckle Flowers

Honeysuckle is native to China, Japan, and Korea and was introduced to the West in the 1800’s as an ornamental plant. Now it is considered an invasive species!

Honeysuckle flowers are essential for any herbal home apothecary. These flowers contain a compound called salicylic acid, an important component of aspirin, which help with headaches and nausea by lowering swelling, redness, and body temperature. Honeysuckle flowers also cool hot flashes and fevers.

Honeysuckle’s antimicrobial properties make it a flu and cold buster as well as helpful for urinary tract infections.

Ingredients in Honeysuckle lemonade, a wildflower drink

  • Ice cubes



  1. Pour honeysuckle syrup into glass pitcher.
  2. Add filtered water and stir.
  3. Juice 4 organic lemons and stir lemon juice into mixture.
  4. Freeze an ice cube tray and drop 1 fresh honeysuckle flower in the middle of each cube before freezing.

I forgot to squeeze the lemon juice separately and ended up fishing out all the lemon seeds, so you may want to do the squeezing on the side.
