It’s hot, its been hot & its going to stay hot. But I don’t mind, I have Strawberry Basil Lemonade on fridge & it’s delicious. There is no better lemonade then fresh squeezed (or that super sugary kind at the fair). I decided to put a spin on typical lemonade & added strawberries & basil. It’s refreshing & delightful, plus it is so SIMPLE!
In fact, you may turn into a lemonade snob & no longer drink “regular” lemonade.
