Seasonal Lemonade

On one my favorite cookbook authors Edna Lewis a.k.a (The Great Grandmother of Southern food) in her recipe for lemonade calls for fresh lemons, sugar, ice and well water. It can’t possibly get any more interesting and romantic to a food lover when a recipe calls for well water. This recipe slightly different, no well water, and we are using several citrus fruits.
