3×3 Food: Lemonade Recipes

lemonade recipesBecause of my lemon anti-fandom growing up, lemonade was never my beverage of choice. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I truly started appreciating it. It’s such a great drink for summer and perfect to ward off heat. I love flavored lemonades best – ones that use fresh fruit. So for this month’s #3x3Food post and because we love you guys, AlyssaLuci and I each picked a different fruit flavored lemonade to create a recipe for. The results not only look amazing but they taste awesome.

If you’re a hibiscus, blackberry or guava (heck, all of the above) fan, check out Alyssa‘s fabulous recipe. You can spot the jam in her photo so I can only imagine how delicious this fruit combo is. If you want to experience the epitome of summer, Luci‘s tasty peach lemonade is a must-try. I love how beautifully colorful her lemonade turned out. And if you’re in the mood for a lemonade with an herbal twist, you’ve got my delicious strawberry mint to try.

I love this fruity herb combination – mint is one of my favorite herbs (I can’t decide between mint, basil and cilantro) and it goes well with pretty much everything. I’ve used it in
fishtabbouleh (salad), and drinks. And fun fact, I just planted two plants in a pot for this summer; my dad says it grows like a weed and I’m hoping he’s right!
