Summer Drinks: Farmer’s Lemonade

I am a fanatic for strawberry lemonade – especially the bottomless offer at Red Robin!  When I first saw this recipe, I questioned the addition of cream to one of my favorite drinks, but I should know not to judge a book by its cover!  I’m not sure what makes this a “Farmer’s” lemonade, but it sure is good!
