With lavender in a large bowl, pour boiling water over it and steep for 5-10 minutes (Usually about 7). Strain the lavender, stir the sugar into the lavender water, then pour into a pitcher over crushed ice. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice and Vodka into the pitcher, add cold water and stir. In a blender (Vitamix), puree blueberries with 2 tablespoons of water. Add puree immediately to lemonade and stir well. Adjust sweetness and lemon strength accordingly.
