I’m not sure what it is about lemonade, but I always feel coolerafter drinking an icy glass on hot summer days. We had lemonade a few times growing up, but when you’re raised in the south the beverage of choice is sweet tea. We went through gallons of this stuff, usually drinking it from mason jars.
I still drink tea today but not as sweet as we did back then. Sometimes I put a container with teabags out on my wall in the summer and make sun tea. Today I love my lemonade for those hot dusty summer days.
We go through lots of ice. I always think I’m going to buy one of those extra small icemakers to supplement what we get from the icemaker in the fridge. This idea really gets enticing when the fridge decides to stop making ice about once a month. My husband always teases and says it must be female – going through its monthly cycle. Good grief! Although I do have to say, this fridge has done this quite a bit ever since we’ve had it. Good thing there’s a small market close by where we can buy ice by the bag.
