Homemade Pink Lemonade

Pink Lemonade

I’ve never made my own fresh pink lemonade before. I don’t know why I’ve been buying the powdered stuff all this time! You can adjust the sugar to make it as sweet to your liking. I like mine to be just a little bit tart.

This really hits the spot on a nice day or rather in our case pretending it’s a nice summer day outside! I made this to serve at my cake party and I think it went over pretty well!

    I am so happy I found your blog. I made a pound cake with yogurt and it came out delicious – it was from the Sophia Loren cook book. I am coming to the UK in October to go see Michael Ball in Sweeney Todd.
