    I submitted Summertime Homemade Lemon-Aide. This easy recipe is our all time favourite summer drink. My mother always made this during haying season and we kids would carry it out to the fields in large pickle jars. I remember my dad drinking it right out of the jar! After travelling in Spain last year we enjoyed Sangria drinks and decided that this homemade lemon-aide just needs to have a nice bottle of red wine added to it to make it a delicious Sangria :)!
