A twist on a classic

When it is so hot (and HUMID) all I ever want is a nice, cold, yummy drink!! Many nights the hubby and I look at each other and say how much we want a cold drink over food. Are you ever that way?

This past week I decided to try a new recipe for lemonade, and it was a HIT! It’s a lot like our Pink Pineapple Lemonade Soda with just a few differences, but will be one we make more often because it was so good. The kids kept asking for “the best lemonade” so that’s what we’ve dubbed it for the time being.

If you ever want to change up your regular water and powder lemonade, I suggest trying out The Best Homemade Lemonade Recipe by adding the few extra ingredients. It is so worth it and takes the drink to a whole new “delish” level!

If you are in the mood for some strawberry lemonade I gotcha covered! All you need is a small package of frozen strawberries, thawed and pureed. Add about 2 Tbsp of the strawberry puree to the bottom of each glass before adding ice and pouring in this delicious lemonade. Try peaches or raspberries too if you’d like!

    1. You could try using that in place of the dry mix and the two cups of water. I have always used the dry mix, so I’m not sure how it will taste, but you could certainly try it!
