Mangia Monday: Summer Lemonade

Nothing is quite as refreshing in the summer heat as a cold glass of fresh lemonade.  As San Diego residents, we are lucky enough to have fresh lemons accessible from many of our backyards (literally).  So, today we are sharing a few ideas for lemonade! Lemonade tastes great by itself, but don't forget you can also add some other fruits to give it a little more flavor, like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries. If you want to make something a little different, add some fresh basil from your herb garden (there's a recipe here). If you aren't big on lemonade, fresh lemons also taste great in Sangrias! This peach-basil-lemon sangria sounds absolutely delicious for a summer afternoon.
