5 Easy Lemonade Recipes to Freshen Up the End of Patio Season.

 

Lemonade is such a great base flavour that you can do almost anything with it. We’ve introduced a new lemonade product that brings the best balance of flavours, lemon’s tartness and that sweet treat taste you crave. Torani’s Real Fruit Smoothie Lemonade is made from real lemons and is an excellent way to freshen up your patio season menu.

This first recipe is bound to be a nostalgic summertime favourite! It brings back the ice cream truck’s greatest product of all time – the Rocket Pop! A tri-coloured popsicle with blue and red raspberry and an electric lemonade middle.
