4th of July Week: Blueberry and Strawberry Lemonade

C – I wanted to call this a red, white and blue lemonade …

but Nature just had to butt in. The strawberries had to seep into the water and turn the entire thing pink. Oh well, it tasted really good. I guess I don’t have to go back to the drawing board for this one.

This lemonade is really fruity and delicious.

I couldn’t believe how well the strawberries and blueberries shined in this lemonade. It’s also not too sweet.

The tartness from the lemons really balances well with the sweet berries and the sugar. It’s nice and refreshing on a hot summer day like this.

What a great way to enjoy a summer night without having all the sugar.
