#31 Days of Pink – Days 2, 3, & 4

I have committed to making/eating something pink everyday for the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. I was away this weekend and unable to post so this post is covering the last three days.

Day 2 – Pink Lemonade for my kids. My daughter’s favorite beverage.

Recipe: Pink Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 6 Lemons – juiced
  • 3 1/2 cups Cold Water
  • Simple Syrup
  • Maraschino Cherry juice

Instructions

  1. Mix lemon juice, cold water and simple syrup in a pitcher. Add a dash or two of maraschino cherry juice to tint your lemonade pink.

Quick Notes

To make Simple Syrup: Bring a 1/2 cup cold water and a 1/2 cup granulated sugar to a boil in a saucepan. Stir to dissolve sugar. Set aside until cool. Chill in the fridge.

Day 3 – Pink Lemonade Frosted Sugar Cookies

I had mini sugar cookies left over from a get together and the pink lemonade from yesterday. So I frosted the cookies with a pink lemonade glaze. To make the glaze whisk together confectioner’s sugar and pink lemonade until you get a thick glaze consistency.
