Delicious Ways to Use Lemonade

Here’s a cool party trick: Invite lemonade and limeade to your next summer gathering for a delicious versatile addition. Sure you can simply serve them as-is but why stop there? Freeze, blend and muddle…get creative! Here are a few of my favorite unexpected ways to use lemonade and limeade during summer fun-days.

Pool Party.

Cool down with icy treats like Easiest Lime Granita and Frozen Arnold Palmers (freeze our 365 Everyday Value® Organic Tea & Lemonade Blend in a baking dish and scrape into glasses with a fork).

Tip: Get the kids in the kitchen to help make them.

Kid’s Birthday Bash.

Think all things lemonade (ice pops, slushies or ice cream lemonade floats, and of course, ice cold lemonade). Shop for Gluten Free Angel Food Cake (download coupon), and serve with berries and whipped topping for an easy cake. Tip: 365 Everyday Value® Organic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream is a Sure Deal

Garden Gathering.

Think pink! Purée watermelon in a blender until smooth; transfer to a pitcher; add lemonade to taste. (365 Everyday Value® Organic Watermelon Lemonade is a Sure Deal shortcut.)

Tip: Don’t pay for a whole watermelon if you only need half; we’re happy to provide just the half you need.

Mom & Dad’s Lazy Sunday.

Thanks to a sleepover, the house is quiet. What are parents to do? Relax with a shandy (lemonade and beer in a 50/50 proportion)…or two! Muddle berries at the bottom of the glass, if desired.

Tip: Pick up some fresh bread (download coupon) and cheeses you’ve been wanting to try; we cut to order.

Bon Voyage Party.

Goodbye high school…hello college! Hosting is easy if you set up an assortment of lemonades and limeades, sparkling waters and fruit for DIY mixing, matching and muddling. (Remember, you get a discount when you buy a full case of sparkling water or anything nonalcoholic.)

Tip: Have precooked kielbasa (download coupon) at the ready for when the crowd gets hungry.
