12 Zesty Ways to Enjoy Lemonade

Prepare to be refreshed.

Share

 

 

That someone could taste a lemon and say, “I’m going to make a sweet, refreshing drink out of this,” is a testament to human ingenuity. Honor that pioneer’s visionary spirit by enjoying the refreshing power of lemonade in all its forms: on its own, as a mixer, and as part of a summery dessert. Summer will be fall before you know it, so make sure you’re getting the most out of it with something sweet, sour, and delightfully cold.

1. Cherry Limeade

Limeade is lemonade's zestier cousin; when it's paired with a nice hit of cherry juice, you'll have a beverage to remember.

2. Watermelon Raspberry Lemonade

This pretty sip brings many of summer's best ingredients together in one vivid glass. Naturally sweet and with all the flavor of bright raspberries, cooling watermelon, and tangy lemons, this drink is so good you might be tempted to skip cocktail hour altogether.

3. Miniature Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Sandwiches

Pink lemonade might conjure memories of your fourth birthday party, but here it gets a delicious edge in the form of cheesecake-inspired ice cream sandwiches. Also, you get to buy a box of Nilla Wafers, and those things rule.
