Lemonade with a Twist

blackberry lemonade with alicante stacking set

We all know and love a classic lemonade for summer time but we would 10/10 recommend adding a little berry twist to this drink. Blackberry Lemonade is that perfect blend of a citrus drink that’s not too sour, not too sweet, and 100% refreshing.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¾ cups sugar + 2 tablespoons
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice from about 10-12 lemons
  • 8-10 cups water
  • Ice (to preference)
  • Lemon slices and blackberries for garnish

 

Recipe -


Step 1

First things first, you’ll need to make a simple syrup to help offset the sour from the lemons. Take the 1 ¾ cups sugar, 1 cup of water, and combine them in a saucepan. Over medium heat, occasionally stir until the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove the pan and let it cool completely.

Step 2

Now take your blackberries, last 2 tablespoons of sugar, and blend in a blender until smooth. Take the puree that’s been made and pass it through a sieve, getting as much liquid as possible. Whatever is left in the sieve can be tossed.

Step 3

Juice all your lemons! Hot tip, lemons are juicier when they’re at room temperature than when they’re cold. If your lemons are in the fridge, let them sit out to warm up. When you’re ready, roll them on the counter under your palm to soften them up. Then you’re ready for maximizing juicing! (Don’t forget to remove any seeds that might slip through)

Step 4

Combine the blackberry puree, the simple syrup, lemon juice, and 8-10 cups of water in a large pitcher. Give it a good stir well and top up with as much ice as you like. Optional: Add some blackberries and lemon slices to the pitcher or serve by the glass with sliced lemons, and blackberries for garnish.

 

Adult Only:

Looking to spice it up? Add an ounce or two of Bourbon to your glass for a classic spiked lemonade combo. If you need a softer flavor you can’t go wrong with Vodka!

A Mango Punch

Mango punch drinksOur easiest recipe of the bunch has to be this Lime Mango drink. It should be at the top of your list especially if you got a love for mangos. All you need is 5-10 min to put together a pitcher that you’ll be savoring one summer afternoon (because it probably won’t last any longer).

Ingredients:

  • 5 Cups mango diced 
  • 5 1/2 Cups water
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 Cup honey


Recipe -


Step 1

Take all your ingredients, put them in the blender, and blend until nice and smooth. Hot tip! Don’t feel like cutting up a whole mango? Neither did we! Just use frozen mango that typically comes already chopped up.

Step 2

It’s time for that handy dandy sieve! Strain all the liquid through the sieve and into your pitcher or jug of choice. Anything left in the sieve can be tossed.

Step 3

Add some fresh lime for little more limey of a punch, store in the fridge and it’s ready to go! Add some lime or mango slices to your glass to enjoy with the drink.

 

Adults Only:


Mango drink? Mango Margarita? I think you know where we’re going with this. An ounce or two of tequila to your glass is really just the natural fit for taking this drink from daytime to nighttime (or daytime too, we don’t judge).

For Those With a Sweet Tooth

Watermelon drink and the theo on natural wrap

Looking for something with more of a sweet palette? This Watermelon Mojito brings together the classic summer fruit and the refreshing mojito in this non-alcoholic version the whole family will be asking for.

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups chopped watermelon
  • juice of 4 limes
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 8 fresh mint leaves
  • crushed ice
  • ginger ale
  • club soda


Recipe -


Step 1

Grab a blender and throw in the watermelon, lime juice, and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Blend it all together until smooth

Step 2

Take the cups you'd like to use for your drinks and muddle up some mint leaves at the bottom with the last bit of sugar.

Step 3

Add however much ice you'd like and pour in the blended watermelon, leaving some room for the soda.

Step 4

Top the glasses off with ginger ale and club soda to taste. If you've got extra mint leaves, pop them on top for a garnish and to add just a little extra minty flavor.


Adults Only:

Considering this is based on a classic mojito, there's no way we wouldn't recommend adding a splash of white rum to the mix. We're pretty sure this will now become your favorite kind of mojito.
