Hi Shelly.
Refreshing view, just what we need here too, it´s almost 40º C. Plus it´s natural and cheap, much better than sodas that have lots of sugar. Cheers!

I sure do love homemade lemonade!

It's so hot here now, I can't wait to try this! Much healthier than all the sodas I've been drinking lately!

Thanks for sharing this! Adrian has been looking forward to making lemonade from scratch this summer. Now I don't have to look for a recipe!

Just wanted to let you know, I have this post bookmarked and I use it every time I make lemonade (I really should print it out before it diappears!). My old recipe had me squeezing the lemons myself, so I was happy to find this one!

Dawn, I'm glad you like it! Squeezing lemons is fun...the first time, but after that, not so much. LOL Here's to making lemonade! :o)
