Quick & Easy Lemonade

There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a lemonade. It’s so delicious and perfect for a lawn party, barbecue or picnic. The best part, it’s homemade and easy to make! Most lemonade recipes call for a simple syrup, but I prefer agave syrup (nectar), it makes it easier because you’re done in 10 minutes!
