Thirsty Thursday: Pink Lemonade


I'm feeling like having a tall glass of pink lemonade! Nice, cool, crisp PINK lemonade... I sound like it's 90 degrees outside, when it's really 70 degrees HA! And then seeing it in a mason jar like the south does it just makes it soooo much more desirable! Then make it a "Lemon-Up" (as In-N-Out calls it) and add some 7-Up or Sprite and mix it with the lemonade!
Here's a recipe from Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa herself! Enjoy!

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
1/2 to 3/4 cup superfine sugar, to taste
1 cup crushed ice
4 cups water
2 teaspoons grenadine
6 maraschino cherries

Place the lemon juice, sugar, ice, water, and grenadine in a blender and process until completely smooth. Place a cherry in the bottom of 6 glasses and pour the lemon juice mixture in the glass. Serve!
