I would make the recipe just like Del’s if I could, but I don’t have any snow. The original frozen lemonade was made with snow. Can you imagine how refreshing lemonade made with real snow would be? Del’s, the frozen lemonade company based in Rhode Island, is famous for this recipe and can be found all over the northeast in the summer, sometimes in trucks, sometimes at stands, selling their famous cold drink. Since I don’t live quite close enough to Del’s to buy it frequently, I decided to make my own version at home. I did it by stirring fresh lemonade into crushed ice. And I mean, massively crushed ice. So crushed that it was the texture of snow. It took a lot of work on my blender’s part, but it work out. A perfect refreshing summer drink for the whole family!
Just Like Del’s Famous Frozen Lemonade
1 batch homemade or store-bought lemonade
3 cups ice
Place the ice in a blender and blitz until almost crushed. Then, add the lemonade and blitz again until the mixture has a soft snowy texture. Serve!
