Sweet Tart Lemonade


Sweet Tart Lemonade

Last night I had success in finding just the right combination for the Lemonade my family likes… I hope you enjoy it too!

4-5 lemons, juiced
3/4 cup honey
1 cup lemon concentrate
water

Take your lemons and juice them into a 2 liter pitcher.  Add honey and then 1 cup of hot water to dissolve honey.  Once dissolved add lemon concentrate and COLD water. 
Put in fridge or serve over ice immediately!
Enjoy!

Side note: Our family has been trying to get away from soda.  We drink a lot of water or honey sweetened tea.  So this is a nice change to the same ole same ole, and for us it seems to cure that craving for soda.
AND…. for those of us trying to get away from that white sugar demon, this is a great alternative to traditional lemonade or even kool-aid!
