When I was pregnant I drank so much lemonade. This drink is sweet, tart, and
½ cup sugar syrup, recipe follows
1½ cups freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 6 – 7 lemons
6 cups water
¼ cup grenadine
maraschino cherries and lemon slices, for garnish
Make the sugar syrup first. In a small saucepan heat ½ cup water and ½ cup sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Let cool slightly.
In a large pitcher combine the lemon juice, water, sugar syrup, grenadine, and ice. Stir to combine.
Place the pink sugar into a bowl. Run a lemon wedge around the rim of each serving glass. Dip the glass into the pink sugar.
Garnish the pink lemonade with lemon slices and maraschino cherries.
