Lemonade is always a favorite drink of people regardless of their age. Some people like really sweet lemonade while others prefer extremely sour lemonade. Some people like to have a lot of lemon pulp in their lemonade and others prefer it with no pulp. Regardless of the type of lemonade you prefer here are some ways to spruce it up and create new family favorites that you will savor.
Adding fresh strawberries to lemonade is always popular. You can either simply add some strawberries to it or even better use a high quality blender and mulch the strawberries into the lemonade and the top it off in your glass with some freshly sliced strawberries. Strawberry lemonade is always well received by distinguished guests as well as the kids in the neighborhood playing with your children.
Put your lemonade into the blender and add a cup or two of fresh peaches. Blend well and serve ice cold.
Blackberries can be very expensive in some parts of the country so if you need to use bagged and frozen blackberries instead of fresh blackberries then feel free too. Add 2-3 cups of blackberries into your blender and then fill with lemonade and blend it up well. If you use frozen blackberries it will make your lemonade slushy, cold, and tasting great.
Add a can of the Soda Pop Squirt to your lemonade in the pitcher and mix well. The Squirt will go "flat" as the carbonation leaves so it is best to drink the Pitcher of Lemonade within an hour or so.
