I know complaining about the Texas heat is not going to make it any better, but when the temperatures cross 100 degrees, you need something to cool you down. Perfect solution: Strawberry Mint Lemonade.
I have made this Strawberry Mint Lemonade a few times now, and find it to be really refreshing. Not to forget the health benefits of lemons including strengthening your immune system and as a blood purifier.
This recipe is decently easy except of squeezing the fresh lemon juice. I found that to be quite of a workout of its own! If anyone has suggestions on the easiest way to do so, please do tell. Otherwise, I hope this recipe helps you beat the heat too!
