My sister loves to drink store-bought lemonade. It's not really the best for you health-wise, so instead of getting rid of the lemonade completely, we tried to make it at home. And it was a winner, she loved it so much better.
Unlike the store-bought kind, this lemonade is made with only a few fresh organic ingredients, filled with antioxidants, and is thirst-quenching. We won’t be going back store-bought anytime soon!
