Top 10: Unique Lemonade Recipes

I have fond memories of lemonade stands as a child.  Growing up we lived literally right next door to a Jack in the Box with a pretty consistent drive through line-up of cars.  My dad encouraged my best friend, sister and I to set up a lemonade stand on hot days on the sidewalk in front of our house and sell to those in line for fast food.  We did pretty well those summers and had so much fun earning cash and sipping on fresh lemonade.

I forsee lemonade stands in my daughter Adelaide’s future; she loves earning and counting cash and making lemonade.  Whenever I have lemons in the kitchen Adelaide inevitably asks me to cut them for her so she can squeeze them into a cup to make juice or lemonade (and makes a huge sticky mess, obviously, that’s half the fun).  Even though making your own lemonade takes more time and effort than picking some up from the store there is something satisfying about it and in my opinion it always tastes so much better and fresher. We normally drink all of our fresh lemonade that day, but when we do have extra we usually use them in homemade popsicles to enjoy later.  I look forward to helping Adelaide, Mav and baby #3 set up their own lemonade stands one day (although I’m pretty certain our cul-de-sac won’t have quite as much traffic as the house I grew up in). Here are ten delicious unique lemonade & limeade recipes I hope to make with my kids this summer and possibly use in our future lemonade stands:
