Summer of Lemonade

Welcome back to my blog and apologies for my absence.

I am going to get back to posting more regularly 
and to kick summer off right -
I am going to be posting a weekly lemonade recipe
for the entirety of the summer. 

Each will start with this basic lemonade base
and build from there.

but vary by type.
