Hot Lemonade

Have you tried hot lemonade yet?  If you are a lemonade fan, you’ve got to try this recipe.  Here in New England, the temperatures are frigid this time of year.  February usually finds the countryside blanketed with a perfect layer of white snow, and this year is no exception.  It is beautiful but oh, so cold.  Still, the sun is beginning to warm, and you can see the promise of spring in the melting snow.  It is also the time of year when New Englanders are looking forward to warmer weather with great anticipation.  Winter has been around long enough.  So, to speed things up, this hot lemonade will remind us of summer to come, fresh-squeezed lemonade without the bone-chilling effect of regular lemonade. 

I am so excited to share this Hot Lemonade recipe with you.  It is a perfect treat for a cold winter day.  Here in New England, we take the traditional summer classic drink very seriously, even when we make it hot to fit the temperatures outside.  We warm it to perfection, add the fresh-squeezed lemon juice, an absolute must, and finish it off with the traditional maple syrup, which New Hampshire is so famous for.  This warm lemonade keeps the taste of summer in our hearts and still warms us from the inside out:)

The maple syrup adds a flavor to the mix that transcends normal sweeteners, the incredible maple flavor takes this lemonade to the next level.
