Wet your Whistle!

Hi everyone!  
Since the Summer heat is upon us {at least in our neck of the woods anyway 100+ the last couple of days, whew!}
 I thought it would be fun to share a couple of the tasty Lemonade recipes we made for this years Swap.  

Can you believe how darling this vintage thermos Lemonade stand is we set up?  Just look at all those colors, shapes & sizes of thermos'.  It was probably one of my most favorite things at the Swap to look at. 
{& believe me there was a lot of things to feast your eyes on- inspiration galore!!} 

Strawberry-Basil Lemonade 
To a large batch of Lemonade add 2-3 cups of chopped strawberries & chopped basil.  Plan ahead, because the longer is sits the more of the basil flavor will be infused into the lemonade- Yumm! 

Cucumber-Mint Lemonade 
To a large pitcher of Limeade 
{I just used the crystal light flavored lime drink}
 add one cucumber, thinly sliced & a handful of chopped mint leaves.  This one works the same as the Strawberry-Basil, the longer you let it sit the stronger flavors will be. 

Make & enjoy on a hot summer day! Thanks for checking out the cultivate blog. There will be more posts from the rest of the Cultivate Girls soon- we have lots of to share with you from this years 365 Carnival Swap.
