Man, it is HOT today. 90 degrees and humid as hell. I nearly melted when I was outside earlier picking mulberries. So when I came inside, dripping with sweat, I wanted something to drink that wasn’t just water. I’m not a pop (soda for you East Coasters) kind of gal, it was far too early for a beer or other such libations, so I dug around to see what I could come up with in a couple of minutes that would be refreshing.
The answer? Pink lemonade. I was one of those people who was naive enough to believe that somewhere in the world, pink lemons exist and that’s where pink lemonade comes from. The real deal? It’s grenadine. This recipe makes one tall glass, and isn’t too sweet, or too tart. I’m submitting to be included in the roundup of the Tasty Tools: Juicer event hosted by Joelen’s Culinary Adventures.
