I'm parched!

It's warming up outside which means we will need to quench our thirst more often.  What comes to mind when you think of the absolute best summertime drink? 

Hot Cocoa?  Delicious, but may not have that cooling effect you're needing. 

Water?  That's an excellent choice to keep our bodies hydrated, but what if you're wanting something with a little more pizzazz? 

We have just the thing that will not only satisfy your thirst but will tantalize your taste buds.....good 'ol lemonade!

A "favorite" of our young chefs combines the sweet and tangy flavors of not just one, but two delicious fruity flavors making this drink one you will want to keep on hand!  The simplicity of the ingredients in our YCA Strawberry Lemonade also makes this a wonderful addition to young entrepreneurs setting up a lemonade stand this Summer!
