Summer is approaching, so we're sharing one of our favorite homemade lemonade recipes to help you beat the heat!

But this isn't your conventional lemonade recipe made with cold water, lemon juice and simple syrup/sugar. Rather, this Rosemary Lemonade is a juicer-made creation from the mind of our brilliant chef, Ari Sexner. 

Unlike most online lemonade recipes, you won't need a small saucepan, strainer or even ice cubes. All you need is fresh produce, a bit of honey and your trusty juicer.

Click here to skip straight to the ingredient list and instructions. Read on to learn why we love this Rosemary Lemonade.

Why We Love This Homemade Rosemary Lemonade Recipe

Sweet, fruity and bold, this summer drink is the perfect antidote for a warm day. 

Here's what Chef Ari had to say about it:

The inspiration for this juice was actually from a cocktail I had at a Spanish restaurant. It sounded kind of odd but was amazing, it was a mix of a light beer and strong lemonade, with a few drops of rosemary oil.

The rosemary really fortified the pairing and knew I wanted to work on developing a non-alcoholic, juice bar-friendly version. Since rosemary is actually pretty good for boosting the immune system, I figured it would work well with not only some produce items high in vitamin C, but also a little bit of local honey. If you prefer agave or maple syrup, either of those can be substituted to replace the honey.

Taste is just one piece of the puzzle. This recipe was also constructed based on the health benefits of these fresh ingredients.
