Vanilla Lemonade - A New Favorite!

I know that Spring has truly arrived up here in the's windy!!!!! Very Windy.......Mary Poppins wouldn't even come here....that or she is stuck against a wall because the wind current is so strong.....

"Just a spoonful of sugah......."  Supercalafragilisticexpealidoious...Hmmm, I won't spell check that one. ANYWAYS!!!

This week's post is a lovely wonderful spring like drink.  One to sip on the veranda on a non-windy day.  These are my plans for May... To sit outside, watch my tomato plants grow and drink copius amounts of Vanilla Lemonade. Yep, Vanilla!!!

This is truly a smooth drink.  The vanilla takes away the acidity but still allows the lemon to shine through.  I LOVE IT!! A Pair made in Heaven.  I tried it on some family members and they were pleasantly surprised.  Sweet, smooth, and yet...lemonadey!

Here is the recipe.

Vanilla Lemonade

What you Need:

1 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed or bottled)
7 1/2 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp of vanilla extract (if you can find the clear vanilla even better, but no worries if ya can't)
lemon slices and ice

What you Do:

Combine ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved.  Add lemon slices and ice.  Enjoy!!
