Like tarty drinks? This version of lemonade is quick to make and refreshing. It tastes a bit like a sinful margarita but without the calories!
*Note that this drink is tart and if you like a little more sweetness, add the extra tablespoon of honey. You can also make this drink vegan by using maple syrup instead of honey.
