Once summer comes around, it’s time to start drinking lemonade. While lemonade is one of the best ways to cool down on a hot day, it’s pretty basic. But there are ways to make it even more refreshing and delicious. You’ll want to make these drinks at all of your summer parties and get-togethers. Here are five ways to elevate lemonade.
Make lemonade even more refreshing by infusing it with herbs like mint, rosemary, thyme. If you want to make it even fancier, rub the rim of the glasses with lemon juice and dip them into a mix of herbs and granulated sugar. Your guests will be so impressed!
Throw summer fruits like berries, peaches, strawberries, kiwi, and watermelon into the lemonade. You can also add a splash of other fruit juices or nectars.
Give the lemonade a boozy twist with a splash of gin, vodka, or bourbon. It’s an adult twist on a childhood classic!
Cut down on the sweetness of lemonade by throwing in cinnamon, star anise, and cardamom.
Make your lemonade fizzy by adding sparkling wine or sparkling water to the drink.
