Lemonade just isn't what it used to be. And that's a good thing! Nowadays, you can find fruit-infused lemonades at every coffee shop or bakery. While we love classic lemonade we think it's fun to kick things up a notch sometimes.
Whether it is adding fresh berries to lemonade or experimenting with different herbs or ginger, you can have lots of fun inventing new recipes for lemonade.
