This lemonade is a refreshing, cooling treat! I did have to make a few alterations due to the fact that I could not find Vernor's soda in my area. I also substituted raspberries for strawberries as that was all I had on hand. I used one 12 oz can lemonade concentrate, 2-1 liter bottles club soda, 1 package frozen raspberries - defrosted, crushed and strained. Mixed them all together and garnished with freshly sliced lemon! Delicious!

What a creative, pleasing beverage. I couldn't find Vernor's either, so I substituted regular club soda. The color of this drink was beautiful served in champagne flutes. I dropped a whole strawberry in the bottom of the glass. Very tasty, and a very versatile recipe. Thanks, Dana for sharing another of your wonderful recipes!

We loved this. We were out on the beach all day and it was very refreshing to have. A very feel good and cheerful drink. I think it will become a summer favorite. I had to change it a little though. I used mixed berries and club soda.

I also prefer this with the lemon-lime soda instead of the ginger ale. I also used fresh strawberries with a little sugar, for they were in season. I used it for a bridal shower, and everyone raved about it. I had leftover and I drank it all! It was so good!

Made this per instructions except used Canada Dry ginger ale. Recipe makes PLENTY (to the rim of the punch bowl), but I would recommend using Sprite instead of ginger ale to offset the tartness of the lemonade. It really needed a sweeter soda mixed with it to enhance the flavor.
