Pink Lemonade

Mother Hen asked me to share my recipe for the pink lemonade that has been mentioned a few times lately on my blog. I decided it would make a nice post – so homey and seasonal, so I’m sharing it with all of you. This recipe was lovingly passed down to me by my mother and maybe hers before her. I have to admit that I laughed out loud when I read Mother Hen’s request and I’m sure you’ll understand why when you read my recipe, so here it is –

Pink Lemonade

-Open freezer door.

-Take out frozen can of Wal-mart brand pink lemonade.

-Peel top off of can.

-Determine whether to microwave defrost for 30 seconds or if mushy already, just dump the can in a pitcher.

-Add 4 1/2 cans cold water (preferably the filtered water out of the refrigerator, but usually from the tap because it’s quicker when you’re really thirsty).

-Stir it up really good.

-Pour over ice and drink it down!

Seriously, this is how I do it and I love it! If I’m making it for a party, I’ll make two pitchers and pour it in my big glass jar with the spout and throw in a couple of lemon slices – it looks so authentic this way! ha! ha!

Now you have it, so why don’t you take a refreshing break and prop your feet up, open up that new magazine and enjoy a nice tall glass while you watch your kiddos enjoying some summertime fun in the sun!

  1. That really made me smile this morning! Sounds delicious. Nothing like an heirloom recipe! LOL


  2. Mmmm!!! I love lemonade! That sounds perfect! šŸ™‚

  3. Well, I have made our lemonade from lemons and sugar. And I have made it from the green bottle of concentrate. But, I was so curious how you got yours to be PINK. Hmm? Was it grenadine? Or maybe it’s the syrup from the marachino cherry jar? I am always glad to know of another easy treat that is delectably delicious. šŸ˜€

  4. Come to think of it, I wonder how they do make it pink?? Maybe I should look on the can and see what they use – on the other hand, maybe I shouldn’t – I might see things that I won’t want to see and there goes my delicious treat. I’m sure that lemons and sugar is far superior to it!
