There's nothing like a refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot summer day!

Today was one of those days and since I'm feeling kinda hot from being sunburned, this lemonade was the perfect treat. 

My niece just turned 13 and for her birthday, she wanted to make something extra special. After some thought, we decided to make this very tasty lemonade. 

Everyone loved it, and it would be such a great addition to a party, BBQ or picnic! 

You can also try different berry or fruit combinations to change it up every time you make it! 

This recipe is a perfect way to get the kiddos in the kitchen! It's simple, fun and a great way to help them learn some math while measuring and mixing ingredients.

The lemon lime soda adds a touch of carbonation to make it "sparkling" but if you want a girl's night drink, try sparkling wine, champagne or add some vodka with the soda to make it a lemonade cocktail.

Any way you choose to make this delicious lemonade, it's sure to be a crowd pleaser!
