Fresh Lemonade with Vanilla is by far the most popular and favorite Summer drink. But have you ever tried it with vanilla extract? This particular method of adding vanilla extract is a Haitian Caribbean thing. I am unsure if other islanders add vanilla extract, but it tastes good.

Add a splash of vanilla extract to your lemonade when you want to try something new. By the way, a good vanilla extract is perfect to use with lemonade and every recipe requiring it. It is an excellent ingredient for baked goods, shakes, and smoothies.

How to make Fresh Lemonade with Vanilla Extract, a Caribbean way
Always wash your fruits before juicing. Cut the lemons or limes, whichever you want to use, in half with a lemon juice squeezer juice the lemons or limes. Add the fresh juice to a pitcher with cold water. It is sweetened with honey, organic sugar, or brown sugar. Add a splash of vanilla extract. Stir well and serve immediately.
