On a hot spring or summer day, lemonade always seems to hit the spot. This one is easy to make and delicious. Watch out – you might have to make another batch because it’s going to disappear fast! This recipe comes from Bronner’s Flavorful Favorites Book 2 and is called Aunt Frances’ Lemonade. But at Bronner’s we know it very well as the best and perfect glass of lemonade.

The ingredients are very simple: lemons, limes, oranges, water and sugar! That’s it!
