Wait until you try GRILLED LEMONADE! So refreshing!

This GRILLED LEMONADE is one of those refreshing beverage recipes that serves up bold, bright flavours with surprisingly little effort. In fact, this may go down as one of our most basic posts ever, and we’re totally fine with that. It’s not often that we can take four ingredients – one of them being water – and turn them into something so memorable and instantly satisfying, everyone asks for more.

Before getting to the details, I think it important to make one suggestion: double or even triple the recipe because one glass just won’t be enough.

Here’s the rundown on how to make GRILLED LEMONADE:

Ingredients for Grilled Lemonade

RINSE AND ROLL

As with all citrus fruit, we suggest you begin by giving the outside of the lemons a quick rinse in cool water to get them nice and clean. Then take each lemon and roll it across your work surface, pushing down on it to release the juices within.

CUT

The recipe calls for 15 lemons, the bigger the better. Take 3, trim off the ends and slice into ¼-inch sections for garnish.

Slices of lemon brushed with honey

HONEY

Mixing a teaspoon of honey with water and brushing it on the lemon halves helps them caramelize on the grill. The honey also gives the lemon a subtle sweetness that plays into the actual lemonade – love it!

GRILL AND COOL

Make sure the grill is nice and hot, about 500°F, to ensure the lemon slices get those lovely grill marks and the lemon halves get caramelized. It’s also important to let your grilled lemons cool for about an hour before making the lemonade.

SQUEEZE

We recommend using a juicer to squeeze these glorious grilled lemons, just to make your life easier. Also, make sure you remove any seeds from the lemon juice before blending it with sugar and water to create your fabulous, chilled beverage.

When you’re ready to enjoy, add ice and a few grilled lemon slices to an attractive pitcher, and toss a grilled lemon slice into the iced glasses too. Looking for something to serve with it? How about our CONEY ISLAND HOT DOGS and our WARM POTATO SALAD – sounds like a perfect menu for a warm summer day!

GRILLED LEMONADE is a must-make summer refreshment we know you’ll enjoy. Cheers!
