Agave Lemonade

I love having a glass of water with half a lemon squeezed into it, and nothing else. Thinking today how it’s probably too tart for most people, I wondered how to sweeten it. I didn’t want to add sugar, so I added some agave syrup, my new favorite sweetener. The result was delicious and a touch exotic — almost like a virgin cocktail — and a great spin on classic lemonade. It couldn’t be easier.
