Summer lovin’ had me a blast ohh yeah
Summer lovin’ happened so fast
Okay, so it’s not summer yet, but it is starting to feel like it – and that’s all that matters. Right? I’m celebrating the super warm weather with this perfectly delicious rhubarb grapefruit lemonade. This stuff is SA-TIS-FY-ING! I mean, it really hits the spot. It has a great balance of sweetness and tart you can only get from fresh lemonade. The citrus and the tart rhubarb blend perfectly together. This is what happiness tastes like.
This is one of those drinks that you have in the late afternoon while sitting on your porch rocking chair watching the sunset. I don’t have a porch. Or a rocking chair. But if I did, this is what I would do.
When making the lemonade, I recommend using room temperature citrus because you will extract more juice that way. It also makes it easier to dissolve the sugar. Just fill the rest of the picture with ice or let it chill in the refrigerator. If you choose to go the ice route, I highly recommend using the King Cube Ice Trays these ice cubes are huge and they last forever. They are the best ice cubes ever for lemonades and iced teas!
