Untitled1

As this is my first ever blog…and sort of like our first date in a way (hi, I’m a Gemini)

I thought that a nice drink recipe would be fitting. While the weather remains nice, this is great in the sun!

I found this recipe on here. Lovely.

Impress your first date, friends and family with this cute, cooling mixed berry lemonade.

Ingredients

½ cup of fresh lemon juice

½ cup of any berries

1 cup of sugar (add or take away sugar depending on your sweet tooth)

4 ½ cups of water
