The descriptor of "artisanal lemonade" put us off trying the Bay Area-made Hey, Honey! for the past few months that it has been available at local markets like Rainbow Grocery and Other Avenues. C'mon, we thought, even lemonade is now artisanal? How much more handmade can something be than to squeeze a lemon in your hand?

But don't let this hoity tag put you off like it did to us, for judging this drink by the words on the label is a mistake. Whatever you want to call it instead, the strawberry basil variety that we finally caved in and tried is some really good lemonade. All of the varieties are sweetened with honey (hence the name) but this is the one that tastes like it just came out of a star bartender's blender.

    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
