Lemonade is always a good idea. Fresh lemonade with rosemary? Even better. I think lemonade is a bit nostalgic for everyone. I’m not sure why but there is something so familiar about lemonade. Something so familiar about fresh squeezed lemons, sugar and a favorite glass full of ice on a hot summer day. But I mean not just during the summer but all year around, lemonade quenches your thirst and just makes  you smile. 

Today I’m sharing a variation of classic lemonade by adding a few stems of rosemary. By infusing rosemary into a few cups of water you get the added benefits of this beautiful herb. 

Rosemary can stimulate your immune system, and it also has some anti-inflammatory compounds! It can also lift your mood and improve concentration. I say that’s a win!
