Flavored Lemonade!

July 19, 2016|Posted in: Holidays and Seasons, Let's Eat!

Nothing says “Summer” like lemonade and fresh fruit!  These turned out so pretty and they were absolutely dee-lish!!  Whip some up to refresh your family on a hot summer day.

A Refreshing Summertime Treat!

I simply used Minute Maid frozen concentrate, but if you want to make yours from scratch I’ve posted a recipe below.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 4 Cups of Water
  • 2 Cups of Sugar
  • 2 Cups of Lemon Juice (about 8-12 lemons if you’ll be juicing them yourself).
  • 2 Cups of Mashed or Pureed Fruit

Fresh Squeezed!

Here’s What to Do:

  1. Pour 4 cups of water into a two quart pitcher.
  2. Add 2 cups of sugar and stir until dissolved.
  3. Juice your lemons and strain to remove any pulp or seeds.  Add 2 cups of lemon juice to the water and sugar mixture.
  4. Taste test and adjust the sweet/tart-ness to your liking by adding a bit more lemon juice or sugar.
  5. Mash or puree your fruit.  I like my fruit to have a chunky texturer so I just mash it with a fork.
  6. Pour lemonade into 8 oz. glasses and add 1/4 cup of fruit to each glass.
  7. Add ice and stir!

All that’s left to do (besides clean up of course) is to sit back, cool off, relax and be refreshed!

Strawberry Lemonade or Peach Lemonade

For a super quick short cut, you can just use lemonade concentrate from a can and simply add the fresh fruit!
