Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade

By Angie McGowan |

It’s the middle of summer, and a heat wave is sweeping the country.  With highs in the triple digits in so many parts of the country, I’m thankful we live in a tropical environment. Even though we have high humidity, we do have afternoon thunderstorms almost everyday that cool everything off. We’ve been spending lots of time playing in the pool to stay cool this summer. For a refreshing drink after pool time, I love to make homemade lemonades. This is one of my favorites, an old fashioned pink lemonade.  This lemonade recipe has cranberry juice to add a touch of tartness and add the pretty pink color. For the best lemonade choose ingredients.

    Sounds delicious — and so adorable to serve it in mason jars for that old-fashioned feel!
