Can you imagine what it felt like at 1pm? Hoooooot!! And this drink saved our lives, and I can assure when that heat hits you where you are, you are definitely going to grab this lemonade that is amazingly refreshing. This mix of ginger syrup with pineapple juice and lemon and lime juice was the FIRST drink every member of my family devoured in less than an hour AND it had NO alcohol. Like the heat we are getting, this is record breaking!!
