READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bonnie G #2

Just found this recipe in one of those grocery store little magazines and it looks so good. Wanted to save it here. Sounds like it would be a nice drink to enjoy on those warm summer days. Might even try it with some added rum for company. Preparation time does not include chill time

This was absolutely the best frozen drink I've had in a long time. I made one mistake and blended the grenadine with everything else, so it came out a little pink, thought I don't think it changed the flavor any. I loved the tangy lemon twist to this delightful drink and I know I will make this often. Yum! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Bonnie G #2. Made for Photo Tag Game.
