This quick and delicious Flash inspired drink is incredibly easy to make and perfect to have on hand at any Flash viewing party!
What you need:
A pitcher that can hold 2 quarts of liquid
A ladle (or large spoon for mixing)
A measuring cup
6 and 1/2 cups of water (I always recommend filtered)
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup grenadine (or cherry syrup)
1/2 cup sugar
Maraschino cherries (optional)
Measure out a cup of lemon juice and add to an empty pitcher. Measure out 6 and a half cups of filtered water and combine with the lemon juice.
Stir together that lemony goodness. Next, add a half a cup of sugar. (Tip: For people who like their lemonade a big more sour than sweet, you can skip the sugar! You can get your sweetness from the cherry syrup.)
Measure out half a cup of grenadine. (Usually I prefer to use Rose’s brand grenadine but both my local walmart and pathmark were conveniently out of it so I went with a cherry syrup instead.)
Add the syrup and watch your lemonade become flashy.
Don’t forget to mix them together! (Now would be a good time to taste-test for sweetness. If your lemonade isn’t sweet enough, feel free to add more grenadine or sugar!) All that’s left is to pop that pitcher in the fridge until it’s cold enough to call Captain.
Step 5 (Optional):
Once your lemonade has chilled and you pour yourself a glass, add a few cherries!
Enjoy that first sip because the rest of the glass will be gone in a flash!
