August 20, 2014 is National Lemonade Day! Lemonade was originated in the Mediterranean region as a way to help treat colds and other ailments. These days, lemonade is most commonly consumed throughout the summer and in warmer months as a refreshing beverage. While there are hundreds of different ways to make your own lemonade, honey can be used to help sweeten the drink as it sometimes can be a touch sour or tart. One of our favorite recipes is this Sue Bee Honey Lemonade with Raspberry Cubes. It’s simple to make and the raspberry cubes provide a fruity twist that is sure to delight. But you don’t have to think of Lemonade Day as strictly for drinks. Check out some of these other great “lemonade” recipes featuring Sue Bee Honey, such as our Raspberry Lemonade Sorbet, Sue Bee Honey Lemon Bars and Pink Lemonade Stand Pie!
