Garden Herbal Lemonade

As we are submerging ourselves in all things fall I wanted to take a moment to say goodbye to summer with a lemonade recipe that everyone will love. It's one of my favorite drinks and goes with just about any menu. I love how pretty it looks in a drink dispenser at parties too.

There are a lot of options here so I have the recipe and some extra tips/tricks. 

Garden Herbal Lemonade:
2 quarts to 1 gallon Lemonade (homemade, store bought, powder, etc) 
3 sprigs of mint leaves
3 sprigs rosemary
3-4 basil leaves

Add mint leaves, sprigs of rosemary, and basil leaves to the lemonade and stir. Let chill for at least an hour. Easy peasy!

This lemonade stays for about 24 hours. If you drink all the lemonade no worries... add more and the herbs will get to work with the new batch of lemonade. If you won't finish it in 24 hours then remove the herbs and discard. Keep the lemonade as is in the refrigerator and you can still enjoy all the wonderful flavors!

For parties/events store in a clear drink dispenser and your party guests will love how "fancy" your lemonade is.
Use flavored lemonade to mix it up a bit. I have used raspberry lemonade and it was delicious as well!
Add edible flowers to the mix for an even prettier display.... Wait? Flowers are edible? Which ones? I'm so glad you asked! I found a cute graphic with some good options below.

Keep this recipe handy for future bridal showers, baby showers, weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, retirement parties, BBQs... the list is endless!

Let me know if you try this recipe and what you think of it. I hope you love it as much as my family and I do!!



  1. What a soothing sounding recipe. I'll have to try it. I usually stick to 'boring' lemonade with no flavors, but this sounds yummy!
