There is nothing as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade on a warm Spring or Summer day! This Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade with cranberry juice reminds me of the lazy days of summer vacation as a kid.

2 cups white sugar
9 cups water
2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 cup cranberry juice, chilled
Mint leaves or lemon slices (optional garnish)


  1. In large pitcher combine sugar, water, lemon juice and cranberry juice.
  2. Stir to dissolve sugar.
  3. Serve over ice with optional garnish.
