These turned out so good I didn’t even have chance to take pictures!  Amber and I munched on them while we sat and talked over a Caper Martini.

One component of my lemonade is a little unusual. If you can get to a Mediterranean or Armenian store, you can find Rose Syrup. It’s great in a lot of things, but lemonade in particular. So here is my recipe for the Perfect Lemonade: : Rose Lemonade Ingredients 2 lemon cubes (or juice of 2 lemons) 1/2 cup organic sugar 1 teaspoon Rose Syrup … Continue reading
