Why I Love This Recipe

This lemonade is super simple and delicious.

When Kelly's Aunt Rita was still alive, every year the Atlanta Bretts would get a couple of large boxes of lemons picked fresh from Aunt Rita's lemon tree in St. Petersburg, Florida. They would juice ALL the lemons and mix them ALL together. Some were more tart, some more sweet, and mixing them together ensured the lemonade was always perfect. Then they would freeze the juice in one cup portions so it was ready for making lemonade at any time.
