Homemade Pink Lemonade for Friday's Happy Hour

Last week we had Plain Jane Homemade Lemonade, and today we are having Homemade Pink Lemonade.  It is so pretty and very tasty, and easy to make.  I decided that I would use grenadine in this recipe, because I always think of pink lemonade as being a little sweeter then regular lemonade.  A lot of recipes use cranberry juice, but, again, I wanted the additional sweetness.

Homemade Pink Lemonade


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup fresh lemon juice
8 cups cold water
4 tsp grenadine


Put 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup water in a pan on the stove and bring the water to a boil.  Stir until the sugar dissolves.

Next add the cold water, fresh lemon juice, and grenadine.

Stir and serve over ice.

I'm making this for my mom's birthday this weekend.  I think the kids are going to love it.  What a great way to end the summer.

Have a great weekend.
