Pink Lemonade

This refreshing cooler is perfect for a hot summer day. I thought of posting this in summer but I wanted to make an entry to Priya's FIC: Pink/Rose event started by Sunshinemom so here it is.

In our home any pink food/toy/dresses are allergic to my little boy. That's the boys world until they grow up! If I wear pink dress he says....phew...girly girl! I often tell him that you are a having pink tongue and you like pink lemonade and strawberry smoothie, but he says boys are okay to have pink tongue and can drink their favorites he always loosen his rules if he likes....that's kids right. Like that I think, it's okay to drink this lemonade in spring. :)

Okay, Here is the simple recipe I used to make the pink lemonade.
