Bey’s Lemonade

Chances are, you’ve heard about Beyoncé’s newest album, Lemonade - which, in true Beyoncé fashion, is forecasted to sell half a million copies in the first week alone.

But if you are not among the thousands of people who watched the visual album debut, you may not know that there is an actual lemonade recipe tucked in between songs.

As with most things in life, Beyoncé said it best:

 

“Take one pint of water, add half pound of sugar,
The juice of eight lemons, the zest of half a lemon,
Pour the water from one jug, then to the other several times,
Strain through a clean napkin.”

 

We then, of course, couldn’t help but make one slight adjustment to Beyoncé’s grandmother’s (already #flawless) recipe to make things just a little more fun. Here is Bey’s Lemonade.
