Everyone thinks they make the best ever homemade lemonade right? And every one has their own special way of making this classic drink.
But when my friend told me about her lemonade recipe, the surprising step she added had me intrigued! I had a feeling it would be a game changer, and I was right!
Squeeze some lemons, add water and sugar to taste. That’s it for most people. But not my friend Melissa! Oh no, she had to take lemonade to a whole new level!
Forget mint lemonade, or strawberry lemonade. This classic version will knock your socks off and leave you smacking your lips and looking for more!
