Store bought lemonade makeover

We’re making three kinds of lemonade using store bought frozen concentrate. There’s something for everyone. The first one up is a spicy lemonade!

We’re going to take a regular lemonade and mix it with a few other store bought ingredients to jazz it up. You can decide how spicy to make it!

The next one is for those adventurous adults who like to have fun. A boozy lemonade with some traditional cocktail ingredients.

We take raspberry lemonade and add a couple splashes of rum (or vodka) and because we want to feel a bit better about our choices, we’re adding some fresh cucumber and mint!

The last one is for all the kids (and those kid at heart adults) who need something cool and refreshing this summer! It’s a Alien Punch Lemonade!

We’re calling it Alien Punch because the green limeade and melon balls make it look cool and out of this world!
