Pink Lemonade is basically lemonade with a touch of pink. This touch can come from food coloring and therefore it will not affect the flavor, or from the addition of some form of berry and it will taste different accordingly. In todays recipe I added some frozen strawberries and a touch of Vimto. For those who do not know Vimto, it is a fruit cordial which we dilute to make fruit juice. It is deep dark red and a small amount of it will give the shade of pink we want.
For this lemonade, try to freeze you strawberries to give the smoothie effect. If they are not frozen you can still make it don't worry, we will be adding ice cubes anyway.
Of course fresh lemon juice is a must, any artificial bottled stuff will not do for this. Also I will not be making any simple syrup.. this is the simplest lemonade recipe you could make.
That's about it, let's get started.
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 700 ml water
- 1 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1/2 - 1 tablespoon Vimto
*Blend the whole thing until all the strawberries and ice cubes are fully dissolved.
*Check the color, it should be pale pink. If you like it this way go ahead and serve. It is cold and refreshing and perfectly balanced. Enjoy!
