Porch Swing!

Wednesday, July 7, 2010
How does "Porch Swing" sound? Intrigued?...Lemonades and juices are great for the daytime...but a little bit of Gin, Pimm's and a whole lot of homemade lemonade mixed with cucumbers is perfect as a drink after a long day....Sound refreshing?

I am going to test it over the weekend :) We all need little indulgence from time to time :) Right?
For the whole recipe head over to the lovely Smitten Kitchen.

Wish you a relaxing afternoon and keep cool :)

Ps: As many of you asked for my ginger lemonade recipe. Here it is!...I also added limes and mint leaves :)
