Fresh lemonade with vanilla extract, a delicious and refreshing all-year-round drink.
If you haven’t had lemonade juice with vanilla extract, today is the day to try. This recipe is refreshing and best serve cold.
Fresh Vanilla Lemonade is just what the name says – lemonade with vanilla extract. I don’t know if all individuals from the Caribbean add vanilla extract to their lemonade, but it is the norm with Haitians. I am not aware of when it started but it seems that the recipe has been around for a long time.
When you want to try something new, add a splash of vanilla extract to your lemonade. By the way, a good vanilla extract is perfect to use not only with lemonade but also with every recipe requiring it.
And please, do not attempt to have a debate with a Haitian person about vanilla, because she or he will tell you that we have the best vanilla extract – I will attest to that. Even a Chef/Instructor at a reputable Culinary School agreed. Sorry guys, but it is true.
Don’t forget to wash your lemons or limes before making this refreshing drink.
