Over spring break, my grandma came home with a huge bag of lemons from her friend's garden. This bag of lemons along with the lemon harvest from our own tree meant we had close to three pounds of lemons at home.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And that is exactly what I did. I love making lemonade from scratch because it's so easy to customize and make your own. This week, I made a strawberry lemonade to capitalize on the upcoming berry season. To take this drink to the next level, I highly recommend adding a few mint leaves.
