Pink Lemonade With NO Artificial Colors

We LOVE lemonade over here in the Disheveled household. If it's pink, even better. Did you know that pink lemonade ISN'T made with food coloring? (Well, the packaged stuff is...but that's a whole other product...) Pink lemonade made from scratch gets its gorgeous hue from a teensy bit of cranberry juice!

It is super simple to make, in a pitcher combine:
  • 1 cup HOT water (for dissolving sugar)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
Stir until dissolved completely.  Then stir in:
  • 1 cup lemon juice, fresh is best but bottled works in a pinch, and is easier on the pocketbook
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup cranberry juice, depending on your preferred color
Add water to fill the pitcher, chill, and serve.

Easy and delicious!
