6 Delicious Ways to Flavor LemonadeKelsey Banfield
We love lemonade in the summer. It is our favorite refresher and we can’t get enough of it. I always make a big pitcher of it for parties and even take it in coolers to the beach. The fun part about lemonade is that there are so many ways you can flavor it. You can add all kinds of delicious berries, herbs, even syrups to make it taste however you want. The other day we thought it would be fun to flavor up our lemonade so we went to Target and picked up some delicious provisions. We also got a few cute decorations, straws, and summery shapes to dress up our lemonade table!

Fresh herbs are an amazing way to flavor lemonade. I like to go outside and pluck a few of our favorites from our herb pot. This time I used some lemon thyme. I've also used torn basil, torn mint leaves, and even lavender.
Beautiful Traditional Lemonade 5 of 9
When it comes to flavoring lemonade you don't necessarily have to make it flavored at all. Just make it nice and strong and serve it with plenty of ice. To make your lemonade nice and pretty, serve it up in a glass caraffe. Use summery spongy shapes that you can get at Target as coasters. They make the setting so pretty!

A lot of times pink lemonade is colored with strawberry pruree or a little food coloring. We bought our favorite pink lemonade concentrate at Target and made it straight from that!
