Simply substitute the lemons with equal measures of lime juice to enjoy the lime version of this homemade lemonade.
This pink lemonade recipe is a fun twist to the agave lemonade and is my personal favorite and one that I love having after a long run. It consists of substituting the lemon juice with 1/2 cup of blended strawberries and 1/2 cup of lime juice.
