Hello Ballet Beauties! During the summer there’s a wonderful selection of seasonal produce available, which makes us excited to cook. Farmers markets are filled with delicious vegetables, fruits, herbs and more! Since we have been very inspired to get in the kitchen and make fun recipes, we wanted to share some of our favorite seasonal recipes that we love during the warmer months. Hope you enjoy!

Sparkling Pink Mint Lemonade
We like to throw this light spritzer together when we are in the mood for a refreshing, delicious drink! We made it for one, but you can easily adjust this recipe to fill a pitcher to share. Put a few raspberries at the bottom of the glass, and two thin lemon slices. Add 1 part of your favorite organic lemonade, and 1 part sparkling water (an equal ratio). Add as much ice as you would like, and garnish with fresh mint!
Please note: Feel free to tweak the ratios of the recipe to your tastes! If you love raspberries add more! If you like it less sweet you can add more sparkling water. This drink is easily customizable to fit your individual preferences!
