grown up lemonade

June 25th, 2010

It is hotter than hot here in New York and to be honest, I just want to sit in front of an air conditioner with one of these. Lemonade is the quintessential summer beverage, so why not jazz it up with a little mint and some booze? It’s cool, refreshing and hits the spot on a hot summer day.

I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of including visiting the unfancy food show and hanging out with lady friends. Good times! I hope you have an awesome weekend! Cheers!

    I hear health-wise agave syrup is worse than HFCS, thoughts?

    what a fabulous cocktail! I often steep a little hibiscus along with my mint in my lemonade to create a vibrant, red liquor. It’s so beautiful!
