When life gives you lemons—Make lemonade!
The 4th of July may be behind us, but our recipe for Blue Lagoon Lemonade is a great summer cooler any day! We served this up on July 4th at our neighborhood parade in Northwest hills in Austin and served 500 glasses—it’s sure to be a hit this summer at your house or neighborhood lemonade stand.
BLUE LAGOON LEMONADE
Serves 8 to 10
1 -1.5 cups of granulated sugar (more or less to taste)
2 quarts water
2 packages unsweetened Blue Raspberry Kool-Aid
Let’s Make Lemonade!
1. Slice the lemons in half and squeeze each of them into a large measuring cup. This should yield about 1 1/2 cups of juice.
2. Place lemon juice in a large container and add Kool-Aid, sugar and water. Stir to blend well and add ice. Serve ASAP.
Kid-friendly Kitchen Tips
- Have kids make ice cubes from some of the lemonade. Add a cherry, strawberry slice or raspberry in the ice cube trays before freezing the lemonade.
- This is a fun treat to eat like a mini Popsicle or use it instead of ice cubes the next time you make a batch of homemade lemonade.
