The heart of a good lemonade stand is a great tasting recipe. What can you add to yours to make it better?

Diversifying your offerings at your stand will give you the opportunity to make more money, and this can be done by adding additional lemonade flavors to your menu along with the traditional lemonade recipe. AND, adding additional flavors to your menu will get people talking about your stand.

NOTE: All the following start with the classic lemonade recipe which uses 1 1/2 cup of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of sugar, 5 cups of water, and ice. (Serving size is typically 10-12 glasses).

Raspberry Peach Lemonade- add a handful of raspberries and 3 peaches. Be sure to blend or juice the fruits before adding.

Mint Limeade- Instead of using lemons, substitute 1 1/2 cups of fresh lime juice and add 2 sprigs of chopped fresh mint.

Fresh Honey Lemonade- Add 1/2 cup of honey to the recipe.

Sparkling Mint Lemonade- Use 2 cups of sparkling water, 1 cup of fresh mint leaves and 8 fluid ounces of simple syrup.

Strawberry Lemonade- Add 1 1/2 cups of blended strawberries.

Arnold Palmer- Double your servings and add an equal amount of iced tea to your original lemonade recipe.

Don't stop here, there are plenty of other twists you can add to the original recipe, and even some you can create! Be sure to keep track of which recipes are best sellers for next year.
