Lemonade with blueberries and watermelon makes this iconic summer drink even more fun and refreshing! The good news is that this lemonade is easy to make and packs a big festive punch with friends and family!
I like to kick off summer by serving it on Memorial Day and then bring it out again on Independence Day. You can always turn it into a cocktail if you like- but it is really good as it is! My kids would drink it by the gallon if I would let them!
This star-spangled lemonade is easy to make- or you can always substitute your favorite store-bought lemonade! Here is the recipe…
Star Spangled Lemonade
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
8 cups water
- COMBINE THE SUGAR AND WATER OVER HEAT TO DISSOLVE THE SUGAR.
- ADD LEMON JUICE
- CHILL AND ENJOY!
To make a Star Spangled Cocktail, simply add 2 oz. of vodka to an 6-8 oz. serving of lemonade.
To make watermelon stars, slice a piece of watermelon into a triangle slice. Use a mini cookie cutter in the shape of a star and cut out star shapes from watermelon slice.
Add fresh, washed blueberries.
Top with a miniature flag and a festive straw!
Serve on a tray with cocktail napkins and enjoy!
