Vanilla Lemonade

Jessica Silva


Maybe I'm pining for the summer, since it's January and freezing out, or maybe I'm just thirsty. In either case, here's my all-time favorite lemonade. I came up with it when I didn't want to have plain ol' lemonade or the cliche mint, pink, strawberry, raspberry, or even the new-fad pomegranate. I hope you like it!

** In a pinch, you can use powdered lemonade mix and just add in the vanilla, but fresh is always better! **
