Lemonade is such a perfect summer drink – refreshing, tasty and it vivdly reminds me of my childhood. When I was young I spent most of my summer at my Grandma Butler’s house because she lived in town, so I actually got some socialization. (Ha! Thanks farm living 😉). Plus she was just the bomb diggity. I mean, where else did I get to raid of a stash of tasty crackers, pudding and Dunkaroo’s whenever I visited?
I remember one specific summer when my cousin and I decided that we were going to make a mobile lemonade stand. Grandma helped us make a big ol’ jug of lemonade and we walked around town with our lemonade in a red wagon, offering it to people. It’s one of those things where I think we only did it once, but I remember it so vividly. I can almost hear the voices of the townfolk.
I think that’s part of the reason I am so in love with David’s Tea Electric Lemonade maté. It’s this beautiful blend of lemon, berries and yerba maté that has the refreshing, tangy taste of lemonade with the energizing qualities of a tea. It’s like a trip down memory lane with a caffeinated, grown-up twist. I honestly can’t stop drinking it – I have it iced just about every day.
Do you have a similar memory trigger?
