Tasty Tuesday: {Not Your Average Lemonade Recipe}

Lemonade stands are a dying breed these days, but why?? As a kid they were the epitome of Summer- the idea of fun in the sun was bright and making that little extra spending money {even if it was only .50 cents!} felt like sweet victory!

Nowadays, a lemonade stand is a rare sighting {especially in the city!} and when we think about it, fresh-squeezed lemonade juice is a novelty in itself. Desperately trying to turn back clocks in our ode to Summer, we are determined to make lemonade a “city thing” this season. But how do you up the ante? Because after all, we aren’t six years old anymore. We think we’ve found the answer…

Lemonade this gorgeous must be brought back to “modern times.” For a more refined look, we dumped the ‘ole Dixie cup and instead, poured the lemonade into small glass tumblers with rose petals for garnish, of course! The rose adds a fragrant floral note to what can sometimes be an overly saturated-with-sugar drink and the extra dose of sophistication makes it all that much more refreshing!

Summer is literally around the corner {hello mid-May!} so what are you waiting for? It’s time to pick up a few lovely lemons and celebrate!

    Where do you buy rose water?

    • Whole Foods is a good place, or also Asian supermarkets!
