Old fashioned pink lemonade with fresh squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup of sugar and water, and cranberry juice for color.
- 1 1/4 cup sugar (if using unsweetened cranberry juice, 1 cup if using sweetened)
- 4 cups water (divided)
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 cup lemon juice
1 Make a "simple syrup" by heating sugar and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat.
2 Stir together the remaining water, cranberry juice, lemon juice and simple syrup. Make adjustments to taste. Chill for an hour, or add ice to cool.
