(Last Updated Apr 2019) – Everyone loves the lift that sparkling water can give you. It is actually quite interesting that just a few bubble can completley change a drink. Now think about how many plastic bottles you purchase and what they do to the environment. It also costs a lot when you think that you are just buying water (or flavoured water) with bubbles.

How to Make Lemonade – when life gives you lemons…

Written by Sean Jewett on . Posted in the kitchen hand

Remember your childhood? Wasn’t lemonade a fond part of a hot summer day? Now, remember your early adulthood, wasn’t vodka and lemonade a delightful blur on a hot summer’s day? We have lost the art of REAL, homemade lemonade. Powder mixes, premade bottled, both with ingredients you can’t pronounce, much less identify, have replaced the real deal.
