RED, WHITE AND BLUE BERRIE LEMONADE:


Ingredients
  • 1 can frozen white grape juice concentrate, organic preferred
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 gallon cold water, or water and ice
  • 2 apples, cut across into round slices
  • 1 pint blueberries, washed
  • 1 pint strawberries, stems removed and halved
Directions
Combine the grape juice concentrate, lemon juice, and water. If you have a star shaped cookie cutter, use it to cut shapes out of the apples. Otherwise cut the sliced apple rounds into halves and add. Add all of the fruit into the lemonade. Serve with a ladle as you would a punch.
