pink lemonade

Lemons! Lemons! Lemons! 

I was recently given a basket of beautiful lemons ~ and I couldn't resist squeezing them to make this all time favorite of mine . . . pink lemonade. There's nothing like it . . . fresh-squeezed lemonade. Add a splash of grenadine ~ and you've turned a simple yellow refreshment into a sweet, pink delight!  

Pink Lemonade

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
1/2 to 3/4 cup superfine sugar, to taste
1 cup crushed ice
4 cups water
3 teaspoons grenadine
6 maraschino cherries

Place the lemon juice, sugar, ice, water and grenadine in a blender and process until completely smooth. Place a cherry in the bottom of 6 glasses and pour the lemon juice mixture in the glasses. Serve.  

simply . . . refreshing & charming INSPIRATIONS
