This is so refreshing and delicious on a hot summer afternoon. I first had it at a friend's house a few years ago and got completely addicted it it. All day I'd look forward to sitting out on my back deck with a glass of this lemonade while I watched the squirrels, birds, whatever wandered along from the back woods.
