My littlest used to have trouble pronouncing 'lemonade', she would call it Lemon Yay instead. I thought it was cute, fun, and fitting, so soon we all began calling it that and have ever since. This super simple recipe calls for only a couple of ingredients, but it is sweet and refreshing, and my littlest makes it regularly for us in the summer. It is perfect for lemonade stands, picnics, or just a nice afternoon break on a hot day.
2 qts cold water
1/2 cup lemon juice
2/3 cup sugar
Mix all ingredients together and serve over ice. I like to garnish glasses with lemon slices, or a couple of leaves of lemon balm from my garden. Enjoy and stay cool my friends!
