homemade lemonade

There is nothing quite as refreshing as an ice cold glass of homemade lemonade. With just a little advance preparation you too can have this delicious beverage all summer long. It is perfect for pool parties, family reunions, and neighborhood shindigs. Summers get fairly warm in this neck of the woods. I love to have some refreshing beverages for family and friends that might stop by. Blueberry Lemonade, Fresh Peach Tea, Arnold Palmer Drink, and this lemonade are just a few of my favorites.
