Since it's been so hot out there keeping yourself hydrated is very important and beside water which is the best, nothing beats a nice cold glass of homemade lemonade! I made some last weekend however, I added a bit of a twist and made Tropical Lemonade and it was delicious!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone having a BBQ or get together it's great for kids and can be adult too with a little splash of vodka!
I got my recipe idea from http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/tropical-lemonade
1 1/2cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 12 lemons)
1/2 cup sugar
6 cups water
2 6-ounce cans pineapple juice
1 12-ounce can apricot nectar
2 12-ounce cans ginger ale
lemon slices (to garnish)
- Place the lemon juice, the sugar, and 1 cup water in a large pitcher. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then add 5 more cups water, the pineapple juice, the apricot nectar, the ginger ale, a few slices of lemon to garnish, and plenty of ice.
