I used to make a similar beverage with orange juice concentrate, but I enjoy lemonade so much I use that. My family loved the results and now I fix this lemon version all the time.—Tracy Brousseau, Orem, Utah
This crisp, tart beverage is a real thirst-quencher on a hot day. Pretty enough to serve at a bridal shower and refreshing enough to pour at a picnic, it's a fun change from iced tea or regular lemonade.—Dorothy Jennings, Waterloo, Iowa
"This is a refreshing summer drink to enjoy on those lazy dog days of summer," reports Kathy Kittell from her home in Lenexa, Kansas. With the simple syrup in the fridge, it's a breeze to stir up this thirst-quenching beverage by the glass or pitcher.
To accompany the warm wishes you send in a gift basket, include this fruity blend from CT's cooks. The combination of powdered mixes for lemonade, raspberry drink and tea is one folks can enjoy by simply stirring in hot water.
This thirst-quenching drink is perfect for a summer picnic or family get-together. When I serve it in a punch bowl, I'll often make an ice ring of ginger ale with a few berries in it to float on top rather than use ice cubes.
Here's a beverage that'll really hit the spot. Filled with tangy goodness, it'll quench your thirst any time of year. I like to use tree-ripened lemons and oranges that are so abundant here in Florida.—Martha Schwartz, Sarasota, Florida
"With five teenagers, we go through lots of beverages," notes field editor Kathy Kittell of Lenexa, Kansas. "This thirst-quenching tea is easy to mix up and had a sparkling citrus flavor we all enjoy."
