“If life gives you lemons, do not settle for just making lemonade. – Make a glorious scene in a lemonade”
So Cal has had a heat wave and this week is 100 degrees at the end of September. I’m sharing my recipe for my drink of choice on a hot day. I can drink green tea without sugar every day cold. It is my guilty pleasure without the guilt.
When sparkling water, mint, lemon is added and drink drink soda rises. True Food Kitchen has one on their menu and I have done everything possible to make a similar recipe. Have you ever been to True Food? Go!
