Refreshing Lemonade on a Hot Day



Refreshing Lemonade on a Hot Day

I really don’t want to complain again about how hot it is, but I will, because, well, it is hot! I’m constantly thinking of ways to cool down and I’m imagining myself on a beach, under an umbrella with a cold lemonade.

But, the truth is, I’m 800 km away from the nearest sea and I don’t have time for a vacation right now, so the only thing I can do to combat the heat is the lemonade I mentioned. Oh it is like a blessing from above! Sweet, sour and the best part, it is cold as ice.
