I’ve been eager to create a variety of lemonade flavors, since I conjured up my first batch of Cucumber Mint Lemonade. (Seen here in this post) Blood oranges are difficult to find. So, when I find them, I buy as many as I can. Last week, almost every booth at the Farmers Market had ripe, juicy, colorful, blood oranges. Needless to say, I over bought! I decided to be frugal by using them to make blood orange lemonade so they didn’t go to waste. I didn’t use a recipe for this drink, so the flavor was a little tarter than I would have liked. To balance the flavors & neutralize the sour taste, I decided to add a little ice tea to this amazingly delicious new drink. Blood Orange Lemonade as well as the Cucumber Mint Lemonade will both be at the top of my beverage list this spring & summer! Try this recipe to avoid the issue of tartness.
**Kailani’s Tip: add a little bit of club soda to make it a fizzy, sparkling lemonade!
