Sparkling Lemonade

Summer is here in Colorado with a vengeance.   It's hot.  Real hot.  You want to be in the shade or by the pool with a cold drink.    This summer, I'm also leading a discussion at church called Seuss and Sangria.  Each week we talk about the Seuss book discussed in the Sunday sermon.   And sip a little.   Now, this drink isn't sangria by definition, but it's cold, sparkly and has my book that's close enough.  

This is an all-ages treat.   For the 21 and up crowd, provide lemoncello as the adult mix-in.  

Hope you had a happy 4th of July!

What You Need

A pitcher.   There you go.

1 frozen can of lemonade concentrate
1  2-liter bottle of lemon-lime sparkling water (you can also use 7up, but that's a little sweeter)
Sliced strawberries, lemons and whole blueberries
Fresh mint leaves for garnish (Fortunately I visited a friend who was growing mint on her patio)

What You Do

Pour lemonade concentrate into the pitcher.    Add ice until the pitcher is half full.   Fill remainder of pitcher with sparkling water.   Stir to mix.   Garnish with fruit.   Serve to the delight of your friends.   Offer lemoncello on the side for a little added awesomeness.   Cheers!
