You may remember our friend Hayley Solano as a past Ruchette of the Month or from her beautiful singing voice that's been featured on our blog in the past! Well, this songbird sent us her no-fail recipe for the perfect summer lemonade. We all know that preparing a fresh batch of this refreshing drink is at the top of our summer bucket list, so we couldn't resist posting her recipe. See below for directions and a little message from Hayley herself! 

As a vintage-lover, creative soul, and a former Ruchette of the Month, I am absolutely in love with Ruche's brand! I always browse their blog for daily inspiration and was excited to come across their summer bucket list. I usually keep quite busy with songwriting and playing shows and have been looking for some fun seasonal activities to do. Thank you Ruche for the wonderful ideas - I already checked a few items off the list! I spent a gorgeous summer afternoon making fresh-squeezed lemonade and thought I would share my recipe!

3/4 cup of white sugar
1 1/2 cups of lemon juice
8 cups of water

1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar, making a simple syrup.
2. Juice 6 lemons.
3. In a large pitcher, stir together syrup, lemon juice, and remaining water.
4. Enjoy!
I hope you are having a magical summer filled with beautiful days like these!
