By preparing frozen lemonade in advance, you'll always be ready to help your guests cool off during a summertime gathering.
A delicious frozen lemonade recipe goes a long way during the hot summer months. It's a refreshing drink that's perfect to serve at barbeques and parties. Frozen lemonade, which is similar to fruit juice slushies, is a perfect drink to make ahead of time, as it keeps well in the freezer.
Frozen Lemonade Recipe
Ingredients You Will Need:
3 cups ice cubes
½ cup sugar (or less, depending on your tastes)
2 cups water
½ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
In a blender, take your ice cubes, sugar, water and lemon juice, and crush together until the mixture runs smooth. You can adjust the flavors if you'd like by adding in more sugar or lemon juice. To serve these tasty treats, pour the liquid into margarita glasses, and top with a few additional ice cubes.
If you like frozen lemonade, you'll love some variations on the classic. You can add in just about any fresh flavor you'd like to. Fresh mint, raspberries, limes and blackberries are only a few suggestions. Instead of mixing the water and sugar, you can also use lemonade concentrate. You can pick up concentrate at your local grocery store either frozen in cans or as a dry mix.
Frozen Adult Lemonade
If you want to make this an adult cocktail, vodka will be your liquor of choice, as it will go nicely with the lemon flavors. Depending on how many drinks you want to have, try a shot per each drink. Therefore, if you want to serve four people, include four shots in your frozen lemonade recipe. You can also try a nice combo of whiskey and rum if those flavors suite your palate better.
If you want to make frozen lemonade that both adults and kids can enjoy, whip up a batch sans alcohol. When you pour the lemonade into individual cups, you can pour one shot of vodka, rum or whiskey on top of the ice for the adult version.
Making flavored vodka is an easy, inexpensive and creative way to spice up your at-home bar or create gifts for family and friends. Once you know what you want to flavor your vodka with, gather up a recipe to follow: plain vodka, your flavor ingredients, two gallon-sized glass jars, a dark closet and a strainer lined with cheesecloth.
