Refreshing homemade honey lemonade

Honey Lemonade

Honey lemonade, June 2011

What’s better on a hot day than a refreshing lemonade? Here’s a recipe for this classic made from scratch. The lemonade has a twist—it’s made with honey instead of sugar. This would be a great use for raw local honey, which is thought to protect against seasonal allergies.
