Dinner was a given tonight. I sauteed the leftover baked potato quarters. Added quartered mushrooms , mixed in the baked Zucchini casserole. topped it off with the current SamM Salsa. And washed it down with Pink Lemonade. I have learned the difference between pink and yellow Lemonade. And as I recall Elvis from Peas Farm said "It is sweeter and has a food coloring agent added to it" Chef Michael offered this web answer:
An Easy to Prepare Old Fashioned Southern Beverage Favorite
Homemade pink lemonade is wonderfully refreshing. This thirst quenching drink is also a southern favorite, running close second to homemade lemonade.
This recipe calls for grenadine syrup which is made from pomegranate juice and sugar. This ingredient is used in a variety of products including cocktails, carbonated drinks, desserts, liquors and marinades.
Pink Lemonade Recipe
- 6 lemons
- 2 teaspoons grenadine syrup
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup crushed ice
- This is a very easy recipe to make. Rinse lemons thoroughly. Prepare lemons for squeezing by rolling them between the palm of your hand and the kitchen counter top, to break up the pulp and produce more juice.
- Next cut lemons in half and squeezed out the juice. If you have a juicer use it, if not just squeeze your juice into a bowl. Remove the seed from the squeezed lemon juice.
- Pour lemon juice into a pitcher and add grenadine syrup, sugar and water. Stir vigorously until sugar is completely dissolved. Next add crushed ice and serve immediately.
