Honey Lemonade

Phew!  It’s been hot and humid here in Chicago.  We’ve had about 11 90 degree days already and they’re relentless!

To help beat the heat, here’s a refreshing drink that’s easy to make and super tasty!


1 ½ cups lemon juice

¾ cup honey

9 cups water

48 small pieces of assorted fruit

Combine lemon juice and honey in large pitcher; stir until honey is dissolved.  Stir in water.  Place 1 to 2 pieces of fruit in each compartment of 2 ice cube trays.  Fill each compartment with honey lemonade and freeze until firm.  Chill remaining lemonade.  To serve, divide frozen fruit cubes between tall glasses and fill with remaining lemonade.  Garnish with sliced lemons and fruit.
