Pink Lemonade is one of my favourite summertime drinks. The tartness of it is so refreshing – perfect for a hot day. When I saw this recipe featured on the Life Made Delicious Facebook Page I knew that I had to make it for an upcoming picnic. I was really excited and intrigued to see just how much the lemonade flavour will come through. And, it did! Every single cookie I made was gobbled up at our picnic. A sure hit with everyone young and old.
