This homemade pink lemonade tastes as good as it is pretty.

Pink lemonade is one of those treats that can take you to a happy place, kind of like pink cotton candy.

No matter what color it is, lemonade is sooooo good on a hot day.

Or any day for that matter.

In the pictures below you may notice that some of the lemons have faint pink variegated lines on the rind rather than a bright yellow color.

These are pink lemons from a tree that I have called a “pink lemonade tree”.

I only used them for this pink lemonade because I didn’t have enough of the regular yellow lemons on hand.

Although the inside of a pink lemon is a light pink color, the overall color of the lemon juice is similar to that of a regular yellow lemon.

In this recipe to make the lemonade pink, 100% pomegranate juice is used.

Pomegranate juice is such a rich pretty color and as an added bonus it has antioxidants.

Here are more recipes made with lemon and pomegranate that you may like “Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Streusel“, “Red Velvet Ice Cream Float” and “Blackberry and Lemon Mason Jar Lid Pies“.

It was a super hot day when I made this pink lemonade and the hardest part was not drinking it before I took these pics.

Or maybe a close second to the hardest part was taking the pics before the ice melted…
