Something for Everyone

Remember the days when your friendly neighborhood streets were filled with kids running lemonade stands, complete with crafty signs, paper cups and a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade? There’s no reason you can’t drink in that same nostalgic feeling with a glass of sweet, lemony goodness made right in your very own kitchen. And, even though lemonade is the best summertime drink, many of us only ever make it one way. Fun fact: There are lots different ways to make it! You’ve got your berry-infused versions, frozen kinds made in the blender and even boozy cocktails. However, you can never go wrong with a traditional glass. Ree’s no-fuss, classic lemonade only needs 4 ingredients ― and is ready in just 15 minutes. Better go pick up some lemons!
