A drink recipe to help you beat the heat


Listening to the news this morning made me realize that summer is finally here!  It looks like there is a heat wave working its way across the country, 90 degrees in Maine?  Yes, please!  When the temperature rises and the humidity sets in, sometimes all you want is a refreshing drink to cool you down.  Today is the perfect day for a lemonade, specifically a Raspberry Lemonade!  Drinks, such as this, are so easy to make from scratch, and so much more refreshing then what you can purchase pre-made at the store.  Add a little mint for an extra touch!  Do you have a favorite drink you go to when the weather gets hot?
