This is a Paula Deen recipe that combines the great taste of lemonade with vanilla beans. Wonderful drink for hot summer days. You will really like this simple recipe. Prep time does not include cooling time.

I loved the vanilla flavor! It was a little strong for me, so I added club soda to dilute it just a little. Thanks for a lovely tasting drink! Made for a fellow Epicurean Queen-ZWT 2009.
