Try this quick and easy blackberry lemonade recipe for your next impromptu get together! Ready in just a few minutes, this delicious lemonade recipe is perfect for spring entertaining.
Spring has fully arrived in Vegas. We have been enjoying gorgeous weather. The nicer weather also means that people are outside more and we love to have impromptu an get together with our neighbors and friends. My husband and kids are infamous for just up and deciding to invite the entire neighborhood over for an outdoor movie night in our backyard. Of course, that leaves me scrambling a bit to get together food and supplies for a simple celebration.
I actually have a lot of items to use for a last minute party right around my house. I always pick up colored napkins on clearance. I find that white dishes go with everything. I picked up this set with flowers at a resale shop a few years ago. A basket is perfect for holding napkins or cutlery or even snacks. The tray I also bought on clearance and it's been sitting in front of my sink for a few months holding soap. I bought different sizes and shapes of glasses because they also are easy to incorporate in to any celebration.
For a movie night, I'll pop up some popcorn and bake up frozen cookie dough. They are so quick and easy. For beverages I usually have either water or lemonade on hand in warmer weather. One of my favorite combinations is lemon and blackberry. But I don't have any lemon and blackberry drink recipes. So when I spied our sponsor's Canada Dry Ginger Ale®'s new Blackberry Ginger Ale, I had to pair it up with some lemonade. My husband loves half-tea/half-lemonade so I figured it was worth a try.
I picked up these fun flavors of Canada Dry at Walmart!
In order to keep the recipe quick and easy, I made the lemonade using a mix for a water bottle. But you can use whatever lemonade is your favorite or even make homemade lemonade.
Add the lemonade to glasses. I have these fun glasses that I believe are footed iced tea glasses. They are actually plastic so they're perfect for outdoor entertaining. One water bottle filled each glass half-way and they are big glasses.
Fill the rest of glass up with Blackberry Canada Dry Ginger Ale®. I love the purple! It's the perfect color for spring. Plus the carbonation adds fun bubbles to make this such a festive blackberry drink recipe. It's also delicious. My kids keep asking me to make them more.
I added in some fresh blackberries for garnish (totally optional but we almost always have blackberries on hand since my kids think they are a food group) and ice cubes to keep it chilled.
