    Is it hot where you are at???  It’s sure hot here!!!  That’s why I thought I would give you my grandma’s recipe for homemade lemonade.

    It’s the perfect drink for a hot day because it’s clean, refreshing and has that perfect little zing for an afternoon pick me up.  I think this is a recipe everyone needs to have in their back pocket because there are so many drinks you can make with a simple lemonade.  (I’ll have a variation for you later)

    Whenever I make this lemonade I always think about a little party my grandma had for me before I was married.  My bridesmaids, their mothers and my mom were all there.  My grandma made this lemonade and I’m so glad she did.  Real lemonade is one of my favorite things to drink in the summertime!!
