One of my fondest memories as a child was icy cold lemonade from the summer carnival.  Served in an extra large styrofoam cup with whole squeezed lemons and loads of sugar, it was the perfect summertime staple, and I find myself craving it whenever warmer weather begins to appear.  But try as I may, I’ve never been able to quite master the recipe.  So instead of mess with my idea of perfection, I’ve found it better to simply create an inspired-by version.  My latest spin: a honey infused thyme lemonade with sugared blackberries I served at my spring lunch.  Think of it as the grownup version of carnival lemonade; vodka optional.  So until the ferris wheels and elephant ears pull into town, best to whip up a batch of this, sit back, and enjoy.  Truly, MKR

  • I just made your fresh herb, asparagus and pea pasts salad last night and it was delicious! Everyone in the family loved it. Can’t wait to try this recipe now…great use of my left-over thyme sprigs.

  • Oops! Pasta, bot pasts. :O)

    That makes me so happy! Did you find the quantities were correct? Sometime when I’m testing recipes I just throw things in and forget to write down exact quantities and have to try to remember. I need to get better about writing while I’m cooking! xo

  • Ooo I’ve been waiting for you to post this! Thanks for sharing! Sounds so delicious, and best of all, simple to make 🙂

    This looks awesome! Would love to make it this weekend to cut through the heat. Do you know about how many lemons yields 2 1/2 cups of juice?
