Hot, humid summers in the heartland call for a refreshing beverage. My recipe.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Super refreshing and cooling for a hot summer day. Perfect to keep on hand for an afternoon picnic or to cool off after yard work. We used the wildflower honey and loved it. The honey adds an aromatic, flowery scent. It gives this lemonade such a fresh taste. But, if you don't have honey on hand, it would be just as refreshing with the sugar.
