Fresh lemonade is one of the most quintessential drinks of summer—no matter your age. And while we love a nice cold tangy glass, there's something to be said for innovative ways to enjoy the flavor. No offense to summer's main squeeze, but these refreshing lemonade spin-offs don't contain any fresh lemons at all. Instead, they use the fruit in different forms, from sorbet to liqueur. One drink is bubbly, another is herbal, a third is sweet, and the fourth is tangy. But all are citrusy and special.

Limoncello Sparkler

Our Limoncello Sparkler recipe is sure to delight and refresh. The only alcoholic creation on our lemon-inspired list, it's just the thing to serve at your next warm-weather happy hour. Prosecco is always a good idea, and it becomes summer entertaining-worthy with the addition of limoncello and fresh rosemary.
