I just had a End of Summer Garden Party and was thinking about what I wanted to serve for drinks. I tend to get a little nostalgic when sipping on some refreshing lemonade that I had to add it to the list. Not only that, it looks like Summertime, doesn't it?! So, this is a recipe that I kicked up a couple notches for those who love the tart taste of lemon & a little pucker in the lips. All the while, sittin' back listening to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince....Summertime! Yeah, we are making sure we enjoy the last days of summer... up here in the great state of Ohio.

How To Make summer time lemonade

  • 1
    Mix well your Country Time Lemonade and water in a large bowl. Then add the pineapple juice and 1/4 cup of lemon concentrate. Taste and see if it's to your liking then if you like it more tart add another 1/4 cup of lemon concentrate. Ladle enough of the mixture into 2 ice cube trays and freeze. (You can also make a ice ring if you need this to stay really cold.) Refrigerate the remaining mixture till ready to serve.

    Poor the remaining chilled mixture over the top. Then add your 1/2 liter sprite and slice up 1 or 2 more lemons to float on top right before serving. (The aroma of sliced lemons is so refreshing.)

    It's a must to put on some great tunes such as DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince...Summertime while sipping on some refreshing Lemonade. Great song! I'll attach it above in case you haven't heard it before. :-)
