Cherry Lemon-Limeade



Welcome to the Labor Day Luau! All this week I’m going to have very fun Hawaiian-inspired recipes here on the blog. You can follow along all week and by Saturday have a perfect lineup for your party. I can safely tell you that every one of these recipes is going to feed a crowd, and you probably already have most of the ingredients.


Every good party has to start off with a fun drink, so we’re kicking this menu off with two choices: Cherry Lemon-Limeade and Frozen Strawberry Limeade (posted previously but fits the theme, and possibly the best drink I’ve ever tasted). They’re both sweet and fruity and fun. Basically everything a good drink should be.


In case you don’t know, I’m also very active on Facebook. Make sure to like the page so you don’t miss any of the fun.


Aloha for now ;)


Cherry Lemon-Limeade

Makes almost 3 quarts

From Supersize Family Kitchens


1 jar (10 ounces) maraschino cherries, undrained

½ cup sugar

1 cup hot tap water

1 can (6 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate, partially thawed

1 bottle (2 liters) lemon-lime soda, chilled

Drain cherry juice into a glass, saving both cherries and juice. In a 1-gallon pitcher, combine sugar and water and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add limeade concentrate, cherry juice, and soda. Serve over ice and top each glass with a couple of cherries.

Frozen Strawberry Limeade


It’s hot outside. This is not news.

I have the perfect chill-out and cool-off drink. This IS news!


This fun Frozen Strawberry Limeade is all I can think about lately, and the kids even love it! It’s basically a booze-free frozen margarita. Most of my recipes make more than 6 servings, but this recipe fills my blender all the way to the top. When I need more than 6, I just make another batch—it only takes five minutes.

I really like lemonade, and this one is easy to make. Don’t let that lemon in the photo fool you, I proudly use the bottled lemon juice. I like super-sweet lemonade, so feel free to decrease the amount of sugar if you want.

Blackberry Lemonade Sparklers

This is one of my favorite punch recipes. It’s super easy and you can swap out the blackberries for any other kind of berry—raspberries are another good one!

 

Blackberry Lemonade Sparklers

From The Supersize Family’s Guide to the Kitchen

Makes about 1 gallon

 

2 cups frozen blackberries or raspberries

½ gallon lemonade, chilled

1 bottle (2 liters) lemon-lime soda, chilled


In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the berries for 2-3 minutes or until thawed and juicy. Use a spoon to mash the berries. Strain berries through a colander lined with cheesecloth or triple layer of paper towels, catching the juice in a small bowl. Discard the berry pulp and seeds. In a 1-gallon pitcher, combine the lemonade and soda. Add the berry juice. Serve over ice.
