In celebration of National Lemonade Day I created an original recipe for a gourmet pink lemonade. It is a classic lemonade recipe with a pink twist of strawberry and pink grapefruit! While this recipe does take some time, it is really easy and TOTALLY worth it! Perfectly refreshing for a warm day, but also grown up enough to serve at a bridal shower, wedding reception or afternoon tea party. It is “that” good and fancy. (If I do say so myself).
