Taste of Beverly Hills: Picnic In The Hills

The final Taste of Beverly Hills event today was themed "Picnic in the Hills" and was sponsored by Target. They handed out large jars at the door, and set up an adorable lemonade stand which was necessary on this insanely hot day!

The stand perfectly captured the essence of Summer.

The bar tenders were cranking out lemonade, which included mint, strawberries and watermelon.

It was great! Super sweet and refreshing.

We were even allowed to take lemons home!
