I originally came across this lemonade at 2 separate recipe websites... allrecipes and recipezaar, but I did modify the recipe to my liking. When making the lemonade, I use a bottled lemon juice (price-wise it's cheaper and it still tasted great) but I'm sure freshly squeezed would taste even better. Also for this recipe, you could just use cranberry juice, but I used a raspberry cranberry juice, as that's what I had on hand, and I added a bit more than what the recipe called for. It was a taste preference on my part, but adding less cranberry juice, will make for a light pink lemonade. I found this lemonade to be quite refreshing!
Old-Fashioned Pink Lemonade
1 cup of sugar
4-1/2 cups cold water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 to 3/4 cup raspberry-cranberry juice, chilled
crushed ice (or) ice cubes
In a large pitcher combine the sugar, water, lemon juice, and cranberry juice; stir to dissolve the sugar completely.
Pour the lemonade in glasses filled with ice and serve.
Yields: 56 ounces of lemonade
Note: For this recipe, I substituted bottled lemon juice for the fresh, plus I added a 3/4 cup of the raspberry-cranberry juice.
