Homemade Pink Lemonade Recipe - An Easy To Prepare Old Fashioned Southern Beverage Favorite

I have found that homemade pink lemonade can be a cool and wonderfully refreshing drink. Especially during the summer months when you get the urge to prepare yourself  a cold glass of sweet homemade lemonade using fresh lemons. I've always been a fan of lemonade and especially when it is pink. When eating out it's the one beverage drink I order most often.

The recipe for the thirst quenching drink I'd like to share with you is also a southern favorite, running close second behind  homemade lemonade.  Consisting of interesting ingredients, this recipe calls for grenadine syrup which is made from pomegranate juice and sugar. Grenadine syrup is an ingredient that is used in a variety of products including cocktails, carbonated drinks, desserts, liquors and marinades.  

In my opinion the grenadine syrup gives the pink lemonade of this recipe a more distinctive flavor when compared to similar recipes that do not include the deciding different ingredient. 

Pink Lemonade Recipe

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 6 lemons
  • 2 teaspoons grenadine syrup
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup crushed ice

Recipe Instructions:

  1. This is a very easy recipe to make. Rinse lemons thoroughly. Prepare lemons for squeezing by rolling them between the palm of your hand and the kitchen counter top, to break up the pulp and produce more juice.
  2. Next cut lemons in half and squeezed out the juice. If you have a juicer use it, if not just squeeze your juice into a bowl. Remove the seed from the squeezed lemon juice.
  3. Pour lemon juice into a pitcher and add grenadine syrup, sugar and water. Stir vigorously until sugar is completely dissolved. Next add crushed ice and serve immediately.
