Fresh Squeezed Honey Lemonade

This honey lemonade is just made to be sitting by the pool and soaking up the sun.

Yes. I know it’s winter. Yes, I am aware of what the temperature is outside. And yes, a girl can dream. Or, at the very least, relive moments from vacationing in the South West where it is nice and warm.

Moving on.

Get some lemons. Get some good quality {and hopefully raw} honey. Pull up a picture of a sunny beach. And enjoy. It’s the perfect cocktail for any stay-cation.

  1. I can not wait until the weather calls for this recipe. A few years ago we were at the market in Cleveland and had the most amazing lemonade ever - it had vanilla bean infused sugar in it. We've been trying to recreate it since, but I'm thinking that the warmth of the honey might be a great replacement...
