Sometimes I crave Chick-Fil-A, and those cravings usually happen Sunday. When they are closed :/

WHY?!

So I decided to try to recreate their lemonade, so I could satisfy just part of my Sunday afternoonIMG_3139 craving. Their lemonade is nice and tangy, and not overly sweet.  I like a kick in my lemonade and this copycat recipe delivers.  It is so good on a hot day, which is already happening here in Charleston…in March. Crazy, but I am not complaining one bit. Yesterday we romped around on the beach with our pup. Romp romp romp.

The machine I used to squeeze these lemons is called a bicep. There is nothing wrong with ‘squeezing’ in a little work out in the kitchen. Hehe.
