Rose Lemonade

To quote Rob Thomas, "Man it's a hot one, like 7 inches from the midday sun!" We've had several days of intense sun and are due for more this week. It's become an ongoing mission to stay cool and hydrated. We've been drinking a lot of this refreshingly light and floral Rose Lemonade with our meals, adding a splash of gin in the evenings. This is a great batch drink for parties and BBQ's.
