RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY
"I'm just me, mother, grandmother...friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom...Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! ...and I mean it, too. God Bless America!"

A grand taste and a grand view to partake of such delightful liquid refreshment on a hot summer day. I followed this exactly. Used this on *Saturday Lunch at the Farm* and I ran out...it was so delicious! It made a perfect drink to cool the thirst of our farm helpers and was a very welcomed addition to the farm table. I put mine in a big glass pitcher, adding 6 cups of water to the pitcher. Floated sliced lemons on top! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday* August 2009.
