Prickly Pear Strawberry Lemonade Directions

Combine lemonade, frozen strawberries, prickly pear syrup, and ice in a large blender. Cover top of blender tightly and purée, starting on lowest speed and gradually increasing to highest speed, until everything is well puréed. Pour into tall glasses, garnish with lemon and strawberry slices and a straw.

Freshly Squeezed Red Mountain Lemonade Directions

In a non-reactive medium-sized sauce pot, combine one cup of water and organic cane sugar. Place on a stove burner set to medium heat and stir occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved (about 5-7 minutes). Use a handheld citrus squeezer or electric juicer to juice one cup of lemon juice. Make sure to strain out any seeds.

Remove the sugar/water mixture from the stove top and combine with the lemon juice, either in the pot or a large pitcher. Add the ice cubes and the other two cups of cold filtered or bottled water. Stir to speed up the cooling process.
