Perfect Recipe for Lemonade Stand
Every child has to be a lemonade stand at least once, right? Having their own lemonade on sunny summer days doesn’t have to just be for a special occasion.
Jack had his first opportunity this last Saturday, and he meant business. We held it during a garage sale that we did with my parents, and he was quite the little salesman.
When we first thought that he should have one, I figured we’d just buy some Country Time lemonade and call it good. We did not think about getting fresh lemon juice at first.
But Forrest didn’t think that was good enough. He thought we should have delicious homemade flavorful lemonade. I told him if he made it, then we could.
He was a firm believer in his idea, and he did. And I’m so glad. It was seriously the BEST lemonade I’ve ever had, and it sold like wildfire. We even sent Forrest back to the store to get more ingredients when we ran out of our third pitcher!
After this experience, I decided that this is definitely the best lemonade stand lemonade EVER. Well, it’s amazing even if you aren’t having a lemonade stand, but if you are wanting to have an awesome lemonade stand…this lemonade is sure to sell out.
