I've always enjoyed pink lemonade and would make a lot of the drink mix variety each summer. Once I became addicted to Lime and Lemonade (Lime and Lemonade) the drink mixes tasted too watered down to me. I decided to try making pink lemonade from scratch too and this is what I came up with. The water and/or sugar amount can be adjusted to taste.
- In a pitcher combine the lemon juice and sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
- Add the water and grenadine; stir until well blended.
- Chill and serve over ice.
What a wonderful lemonade Marg. I used a mixture of fresh lemon & lime juice and the grenadine option. Beautiful lemonade, pretty, sweet, tart and tangy. This is a very refreshing treat, thanks for sharing.<br/><br/>Update: I love this recipe and have made it many times, this time I used a pomegranate syrup that worked beautifully in this drink. My wee granddaughter is going to absolutely love this, can't wait to share it with her.... Made for Pink Think 2013.
I needed a lemonade for a drink and I made your recipe. It was great. The taste of the lemonade is so good. I made a small batch yesterday and today again. Thanks Marg :) Made for All you can cook buffet
You know, I never thought to use grenadine in my lemonade :) Everyone here seems to prefer their lemonade sweeter than I do (drat!) so I cut back on the lemon juice and added more grenadine. I just used bottled lemon juice since we're out of lemons. I added a splash or two of cranberry juice as well. Delicious! Thanks!
