Pineapple-Cilantro Lemonade Recipe


Pineapple plus Cilantro = lemonade??? Yes, you heard that correctly. I like to think of myself as a chemist in the kitchen and this is what I came up with. Infusing water with pineapple and cilantro is quite refreshing but this lemonade is going to be a Traphouse staple.
