The warm weather is here and the long days of summer, and nothing makes friends and family smile like lemonade. Simply put, it’s a classic — a staple of the season that everyone enjoys drinking to cool off.
Whether your spending time in the backyard, at the park or just in your kitchen, Country Time Lemonade hits the spot. It’s available in Traditional and Pink, and is a delicious blend of sweet and tart that will stir memories of summers past and remind you of what warm weather is really all about.
We were able to try some Country Time Lemonade this week, and while it’s always tasty and refreshing when just mixed, you can kick it up a notch and used a recipe from Kraft Foods.
Berry Lemonade Coolers
- 1 Cup of Country Time Lemonade Flavor Drink Mix
- 6 Cups of Cold Water (Divided)
- 12 oz. of Frozen Unsweetened Strawberries (Do Not Thaw)
- BLEND drink mix, 3 cups water and berries in blender until smooth.
- POUR into large pitcher, stir in remaining water and serve immediately.
This is easy and quick to fix and tastes good. It’s not too sweet, but still has zip to it. This recipe is definitely a keeper! You will probably want to double it right away, because one batch probably won’t be enough.
