Fresh Takes on Lemonade...

     Just like S'mores, almost nothing smacks you in the face and screams "SUMMER TIME!!!" like a nice cold glass of lemonade. I don't know about you, but I do tend to get pretty burned out on the same old same old. While reading an issue of Woman's World, I came across these fresh takes on the old classic:
  • Virgin Watermelon Mojito: In a blender, puree 1 part lemonade with 1/2 part seedless watermelon chunks. For each serving, in a large glass, crush 2 lime slices with 1 Tbsp mint leaves. Add ice, then the watermelon lemonade.
  • Lemonade Sunset: In a tall ice-filled glass, combine equal parts of lemonade and cranberry juice. Top off with a splash of orange juice.
  • Tropical Breeze: In tall ice-filled glass, combine equal parts of lemonade, pineapple juice and passion fruit juice.
  • Blueberry-Ginger: In a blender, process 1 part lemonade and 1/4 part blueberries. Fill tall ice-filled glass 3/4 full with the blueberry lemonade, then top off with ginger ale.
  • Herbal Iced-Tea Lemonade: In a tall ice-filled glass, combine equal parts chilled, brewed lemon herbal tea and lemonade.
  • Strawberry Lemonade: In tall glass, stir strawberry syrup, to taste, into lemonade, then add ice. For a little extra fun, top with a scoop of strawberry sorbet.
I am definitely going to be trying the Lemonade Sunset and the Strawberry Lemonade... Hmmm... And maybe the Tropical Breeze... Awww heck, that Blueberry-Ginger one sounds kind of interesting, I may just have to try that one, too! LOL Which one will you try?

  2. I know, right? I think they all sound pretty delicious, not to mention refreshing! :) I can't wait to give them a try, myself. Usually, I will not post a recipe for something I have not yet made myself, but I figure lemonade is pretty foolproof.LOL
