Sparking Gin and Rosemary Lemonade Is As Modern As It Gets

Southern living or country life is a tall glass of sweet tea or a refreshing cold glass of lemonade. You can go anywhere in the south and find someone with one of these drinks in their hand. Where I am from women literally work on a cooler of lemonade from freshly squeezed lemons for 2 days and it is literally delicious.

Most people from a modern culture are unaware of the passion women from past generations put in the food and effort they put into a drink to delight their tastebuds and the tastebuds of their guest. Today, the only drink most people ask for that contains a lemon is a glass of water, on occasion a glass of unsweetened tea or a cocktail.
