There is nothing like a cold glass of lemondae in the summer. A glass of lemonade is amazing but why not spice things up? You can make this delicious grapefruit and thyme lemonade! It's so light and refreshing. The grapefruit can sometimes be bitter but in this lemonade it's just right. Personally I love thyme. Thyme has a little hint of lemon in it already. So it compliments the lemonade perfectly. It adds a wonderful freshness to the lemonade that you can't find. I hope you get a chance to make this lemonade this summer. I know you will love it.

      You can try stevia. I don't know a lot about sugar alternatives that will taste good.
