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.
Prosecco becomes summer entertaining-worthy with the addition of limoncello and fresh rosemary.
Lemongrass-Mint Iced Tea
Bright lemongrass provides the citrus flavor here. Stalks are steeped with mint tea and honey overnight, then served over ice.
Frosty Coconut Lemonade
Kids and adults alike will adore this frozen "lemonade" made with coconut milk, lemon sorbet, and frozen raspberries. It's dessert in a glass!
Having a stash of preserved lemons in the fridge is like having money in the bank. Pick up a jar at the store or whip up a batch of our fennel-and-coriander version for this fizzy, refreshing drink—it lends a wonderful savory note.
