Aside from water, of course, there’s almost nothing as refreshing as a nice, cold glass of lemonade. Slightly zesty, ridiculously sweet, and too amazing not to love, lemonade may be most popular during the spring and summer months but it totally holds up at any time of the year. About a week into February and with temperatures topping out at about 30 degrees in my state I got a craving for lemonade that would not be quenched. It didn’t matter how cold it was or the fact that I had to wear all of my winter gear, mittens and all, to go buy lemons. All that mattered was my quest for the most delicious drink in the world.
Luckily, this quest was completed with a homemade pitcher that ended up mysteriously disappearing in less than a day. Still, it was totally worth the trouble. Just like these every single one of these delicious recipes!
