Celebrate the Day of the Girl with Pink Lemonade!
There’s no better drink to celebrate the UN’s first ever Day of the Girl than some delicious refreshing pink lemonade! It’s also the beverage of choice if you’re running a Because I Am A Girl fundraiser! Here’s a great recipe
1 cup sugar
1 cup room temperature water
3 cups cold water
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup sweetened cranberry juice
First make simple syrup: Combine the sugar and 1 cup. Bring to a boil, stirring the mixture occasionally to help it dissolve. Remove from heat when the sugar is completely dissolved. Let the syrup cool.
Pour the lemon juice (either fresh-squeezed or store bought) into a pitcher. Add the cold water, the simple syrup and a cup of sweetened cranberry juice. Stir. Chill in the refrigerator before serving or pour over ice immediately.
