Kids hanging out with homemade pink lemonade in the shade. Good times!
Juice of 2 lemons
1/4 cup grenadine (you can use pureed strawberries/raspberries too)
Sugar syrup to taste (dissolve 1 2 cups sugar in 2 cups water, boil and store in fridge)
Juice lemons, add grenadine - fill jug half way with ice then water to 3/4 full. Taste and add sugar syrup to taste. The sugar syrup makes sure that it dissolves fully.
For grown-up drinks, I make a separate jug sans grenadine with mint leaves and vodka. But keep it labelled!
