 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 c Water
  • 1 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 ts Finely shredded lemon peel

Tropical Lemon Iced Tea. Makes about 5 cups of lemonade base.

LEMON SHERBET FLOAT (Sippable sherbet with a sweet and tangy lemon
taste): For each serving, place 1 or 2 small scoops lemon sherbet in a
tall glass. Pour 1/2 cup carbonated water over the sherbet. Sprinkle with
fresh raspberries or blueberries, if desired. Serve immediately. (187

STRAWBERRY-LEMONADE SLUSH (Two summer-fresh tastes in one): For each
serving, in a blender container combine 1/2 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened
strawberries, 1/3 cup Make-Ahead Lemonade Base, and 1 tablespoon sugar.

Blend till smooth. With blender running, add about 1 cup ice cubes, one at
a time, through opening in lid till strawberry mixture becomes slushy. Pour
into a tall glass. Garnish slush with a fresh strawberry half, if desired.
Serve immediately. (198 calories)
