Mouthwatering Monday: Bridget’s Best Lemonade

I love winter.
I love wearing sweaters.
And fires.
And drinking hot cocoa.
And mmmm…spiced cider.
I love everything about winter.
(Of course I live in the South where snow isn’t a problem! 🙂 )

I hate summer.
I hate that you can never get cool.
I hate sweating when I walk to the mailbox.
I hate feeling yucky and sticky and sweaty.

BUT summer does bring two of my favorite things:  Lemonade and Lemonade Cake
(Seriously?  You haven’t lived until you’ve had Lemonade Cake.)

The kids and I love to make our own lemonade.
It’s super easy and oh-so-delicious!

1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (that’s roughly 6ish lemons)
1 cup sugar or Splenda
6 cups ice water
Coarse sea salt optional, but preferred!

It’s as simple as mixing up the lemon juice, sweet stuff and water.
Salt the rim of your cup. (That cuts the bitter taste and makes it juuuust right.)
Pour and enjoy…with lemonade cake.

    I hate the winter. But if I didn’t have to worry about snow and ice and freezing cold temperatures all the time, I might like it a little more. I do love all the other things you mentioned about the winter though… just not the cold…

    I love Christmas, and even January, but February and March are rough. I LOVE April and May! Come on strawberry picking season!

    Lucky! For us, the strawberry picking season starts around Mother’s Day. That is alos when my peonies are in full bloom.
