Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade Recipe


  • 1 1/4 cup sugar (if using unsweetened cranberry juice, 1 cup if using sweetened)
  • 4 cups water (divided)
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup lemon juice


1 Make a "simple syrup" by heating sugar and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat.
2 Stir together the remaining water, cranberry juice, lemon juice and simple syrup. Make adjustments to taste. Chill for an hour, or add ice to cool.
Yield: Serves 6.

I hope you enjoy this new feature for the "summer"!  What is your favorite type of Lemonade?  I always like to get a handmade lemonade a carnivals or from street vendors.
Stay Sweet,
