Each year our family gathers in Oregon to run a Mexican food booth at a fair that we have participated in for almost 40 years. When I was younger, my grandparents had a Mexican restaurant in town and we also did several different fairs and festivals. Not only was it our first job and how we earned money during the summers as kids, but it is also a great time that brings our family together each year to spend time and have fun. So now we only do one fair, because it’s our favorite and a wonderful family tradition to pass on to our children. Let’s be honest, if it’s a tradition that centers around amazing homemade Mexican food, it’s bound to be a good time!
To prepare for the fair, we have a lot that we have to do. So we all get together about a week before to start the prep. Of course during that time, we enjoy family meals from barbecues to sandwich bars. To bring some delicious, summer flavors to our meals, I made this yummy Triple Melon Lemonade.
While it’s wonderful to make lemonade from scratch, there isn’t always time. Using Minute Maid® Lemonade, it made this recipe really easy and so refreshing.
Triple Melon Lemonade
7 1/2 cups Minute Maid® Lemonade
1 cup watermelon, pureed
1/2 cup cantaloupe, pureed
1/2 cup honey dew, pureed
Additional watermelon, cantaloupe, and honey dew for garnish
Lemon wedges for garnish
Pour Minute Maid® Lemonade into a large pitcher. In blender, puree melons separately, then stir the melon purees into the lemonade. There will be pulp in the puree, if you would prefer, strain the purees using a mesh strainer before serving. Chill in the refrigerator.
Using your remaining melons, use a melon baller to create small melon balls. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. When you are ready to serve your lemonade, instead of using ice, have the melon balls available to keep it cold and add extra flavor!
Now if you are looking to Refresh the Way You Flavor Your Day using Minute Maid® Lemonade, just head to your local Walmart and grab one of the 12 packs of 12 oz cans. You’ll only need about 5 cans for this recipe!
You can find it on the soda aisle. We prefer the cans, but you can also get it in a 2 liter. If you’re craving a refreshing lemonade or you want to jazz it up with some extra ingredients, Minute Maid® is the way to go! We hope you love this Triple Melon Lemonade. Make sure you tell us in comments what your favorite family traditions are! We’d love to hear if what you do to share the special things that you did as a child with your children.
