Keep it Cool: Summer Lemonade

Days here have been really really hot!

I have been in Australia for almost 5 years now and I still don’t get use to its hot summer. Yes I know Mexico is hot too, but it is completely different. The side of the country I used to live in was hot but tropical which means that was very humid. So I really have to come up with ways to keep me cool during this boiling months.
