Thursday Challenge - Vacation Drink - July 10 2008.jpg


This weeks Challenge was 'A DRINK TO GET YOU IN THE MOOD FOR A HOLIDAY!, and though I'd considered various beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), I decided that good old-fashioned Freckled Lemonade was my choice. It just lends itself to sitting on a porch in a comfy chair with a good book, listening to the clink of the ice cubes in the glass and tasting the sweetness of fresh strawberries mingling with the tartness of lemonade as you lose yourself in the words on the pages in front of you.

(Edit for those who asked: Freckled lemonade is easy to make. Just make your favorite lemonade and slice fresh strawberries into it. Let the flavors mix for a few hours, til the lemonade starts to turn strawberry colored, then enjoy! It can also be made with other berry-type foods, and you can use frozen berries if it's not the season for fresh, but I like the taste of the fresh ones best!)

this looks so good! I like the placement of the strawberry in the corner, nice details and exposure. Well executed shot. The colors are great! v

i've never heard it called freckled before . . . my mom used to do that all the time . . & added gingerale to make it "special" in the summer =)))

I have to say it looks refreshing but it's so cold here I'll have to pass on it this time. Quite a detailed close up.

I had never heard of freckled lemonade but I will try it! Is it just sliced strawberries and lemonade?

You are a poet! I hate lemonade, but I love the mood you pulled me in....on the porch with the book and no one around...lost in my thoughts.
Great! v
