Hold Onto Summer Year-Round with Lemon-Themed Recipes

by Cascade Ice on August 29, 2013

Labor Day is around the corner and we will soon be trading our water slides and white sandals for cozy sweaters and fall activities. But you can still hold onto the last rays of summer sunshine with Cascade Ice’s lemon-themed recipes, perfect year-round.

Traditional Strawberry Lemonade

You can never go wrong with the traditional Strawberry Lemonade. Pour 8oz Strawberry Lemonade Cascade Ice into an ice filled glass. Slice 3-4 fresh strawberries and 1 small lemon and add to your glass. Stir with a straw to evenly disperse the natural flavors from the fresh fruit.

Pink Grapefruit Lemonade

For a unique and crowd pleasing lemonade, whip up the Pink Grapefruit Lemonade. Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour 8oz of Pink Grapefruit Cascade Ice over the ice. Take a small fresh lemon and cut it in half. Squeeze the lemon juice from one ½ lemon into your glass and make sure to strain the lemon seeds. Add a couple slices of fresh lemon to compete the drink.

Lemon Drop Twist

The Lemon Drop Twist recipe is a spin off the Cascade Ice Lemon Drop recipe. The Lemon Drop Twist uses Lemonade Cascade Ice rather than the Lemon Drop Mixer Cascade Ice. Add 8oz Lemonade Cascade Ice Water, 2oz vodka and 1oz Amaretto to a martini mixer. Shake gently, pour over ice and garnish with a lemon slice and cinnamon stick.

Back-to-school season is a great time to change up your kids’ eating habits. Yes, it’s easy to serve them soda or a glass of lemonade, but do you know that those beverages can contain upwards of 38 grams of sugar?

Try something different. Cascade Ice is a zero-calorie, sparkling flavored water that is free of unhealthy “extras” like sugar, sodium, caffeine and gluten. The line comes in 21 delicious and unique flavors including Orange Mango, Coconut, Strawberry Lemonade and Pomegranate Berry!

Zero calorie drinks

Kids love the great taste of Cascade Ice, and parents are thrilled to have a healthier option than sugary juices and sodas to add to lunches or snacks.
