We first tried this wonderfully different lemonade at La Parilla restaurant in Lawrence, Kansas. It is slightly creamy and very refreshing.

  2. Serve over ice.

1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins (optional)


  1. Mix all ingredients in oven proof bowl.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees about 45 min or until top is lightly browned.
