Today was National Lemonade Day and what better way to celebrate than have a unique glass of lemonade? This is the perfect way to end the Summer!  Here are some recipes I found that sounded fun to try:

Lavender Lemonade

Looking for a fresh, almost European-style, lemonade to serve as a sophisticated beverage? The Krazy Coupon Lady has a fabulous Lavender Lemonade that will certainly peak your guests’ interest.

You’ll Need:

4 cups of water
¼ cup of chopped, fresh lavender leaves
2/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice (roughly 6 lemons)
Lavender stems

Directions

Boil the sugar and the lemon juice until it creates a syrup. Add water to the pot and return it to a boil. Remove from heat, and steep the lavender leaves in the lemonade for at least ten minutes. Strain the leaves out, and then pour your lemonade into a pretty pitcher. Garnish with lavender stems.

 

and

Lemonade Martini

Want an adults-only recipe? Whip up a batch of this yummy, grown-up Lemonade by our girls, The Sugar Mommas:

You’ll Need:

1 part lemon liqueur (preferably Caravella Limoncello originale d’Italia)
2 parts vodka (preferably Absolut Citron)
4 parts lemonade
1 part fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Sugar to rim your glass

Directions

Dip the rim of a martini glass in lemon juice and then into sugar for a pretty treat. Then, in a cocktail shaker, combine the ingredients with ice. Shake, shake, shake! Then, strain into your martini glass, and enjoy! You can also garnish the glass with a lemon twist, wedge, slice, or even a mint leaf for a little color.

However you choose to enjoy your lemonade, pour yourself a glass on Monday in celebration of National Lemonade Day… And thank life for all the lemons it gave you!

  1. Application of cucumber extract hydrates skin surface and prevents dryness
    problems. Whiteheads, also known as milia or closed comedones,
    are hard white bumps caused by the collection of oil and
    dead skin cells inside pores. Occasional facial masks are beneficial to all skin types.

    Also remember this even if the retail store brand prices are cheaper than a name brand price, if your retailer double coupon codes it can become double the dollars off (which almost always makes that the better bargain). Good luck!
