This summer, I may have just found my new favorite, easiest, coolest drink to stay hydrated.
Since we got married in May, we had a LOT of leftover drinks...basically I bought 4 times the amount that we actually used, but it was the right projected amount for our guestimated amount of people assuming they each drank several glasses at the wedding. We've been having A LOT of lemonade this summer.
Here's a strange tidbit about me. Call me weird, call me un-Oklahoman, call me un-American...call me what you will, but I don't really like ice. It is really just too cold for me in most cases, it hurts my teeth and I can't taste anything because it is too cold. Then there's the added bonus that most people in the south would rather have more ice than drink - which is weird because to me that's how you get ripped off (especially at Sonic where you don't get refills). Blueberries don't seem quite as cold, and by the time you are done with lemonade you can eat them.
Did I mention that blueberries are also really good for you? We have a history of Alzheimer's Disease in my family, and there are strong links between eating blueberries and preventing memory loss. Its worth a try in my opinion to keep blueberries and other healthy foods steady in our diets!
If you want to make it yourself, here are the ingredients we use:
