Welcome to Foxes Love Lemonade! I’m (obviously) obsessed with the bright, tart taste of lemons, and I love freshly squeezed lemonade as well! Classic lemonade is just dandy, but in this summertime monthly post, I’ll be coming up with new spins on my favorite cool-down drink.
Aw, this is my final installment of Foxes Love Lemonade for the year. I’m kind of sad, because I’ve had so much fun making, drinking and photographing all kinds of homemade lemonade (special shoutout to my BFF mango lemonade). I definitely plan to do another lemonade series next summer, and of course, I’ll bring you some other lemon treats to brighten your day during the dark and gloomy winter months to come.
My husband travels to Mexico several times a year, and without fail, he brings me back four things: tequila, more tequila, agave nectar, and additional tequila. I left the tequila on the shelf today (although really, a splash of it would be good in this lemonade), and instead used just the agave nectar to balance the tartness of the lemons without any granulated white sugar.
You can find agave nectar in most U.S. supermarkets nowadays, and it’s usually located near either the honey or regular sugar. You only need 3 ingredients + water to stir up a batch of this Mexican-inspired lemonade!
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 3 cups water
- In pitcher, stir together lemon juice, lime juice and agave nectar. Add water; stir until well combined. Serve lemonade over ice.
