Lemonade stands have become routine around our neighborhood this year. Little Miss and her friends have decided to start holding them to earn money to buy the things they want.

So, instead of featuring just plain lemonade all the time, they’ve decided to up their game and create more of a Gourmet Lemonade Stand. Here are 25+ gourmet lemonade recipes that the girls will be trying this summer. I can’t wait to be the taste tester!
Gourmet Lemonade Recipes
Janell’s easy and yummy Strawberry Lemonade Spritzer recipe on Saving You Dinero looks so fun! The girls are especially excited about the sugar crystals around the rim of the glass. Do you think they can charge more for that?!
Mint Lemonade is usually a staple at our house in the summer, because we have so.much.mint. growing in the garden. This easy recipe by Myra and Laurier at Delicious on a Dime is the perfect way to make it.
The trick with this yummy Raspberry Blueberry Lemonade by Sherri at To Simply Inspire is to make sure the berries are blended really well. We tried it with sugar, but you could totally use honey instead.
Anything frozen and sweet is a hit at our house during the summer, so Courtney’s Pineapple Lemonade Ice Pops recipe on Courtney’s Sweets are a must-try. The girls are trying to figure out how to keep them from melting at their lemonade stand, but so far we haven’t been able to keep them cold enough.
Ashley suggests just mashing the blackberries in this Blackberry Passion Tea Lemonade recipe that can be found on Ashley Brooke Nicholas, but we’re thinking of blending them up to help get rid of some of the seedy texture.
I think my youngest could eat her weight in Chick-fil-A’s Frosted Lemonade, so this Copycat Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade by Jen at Cincy Shopper is going to save us a ton of money – not to mention make the girls a pretty penny at their lemonade stand!
This Mixed Berry Lemonade recipe by Nate and Lacy at Wanna Bite is the perfect summertime mix of healthy and tasty treat. We recommend blending up those berries really good though if you’re not a seed-texture fan.
I never think to add savory herbs to our sweet treats, but this Strawberry Basil Lemonade by Florentina at the Veggie Society is a great example of why I should. It takes gourmet lemonade recipes to whole new level!
This sparkling Peach Lemonade by Shannon at Home Made Lovely can be made without alcohol for the littles and the lemonade stand, but then kicked up a notch for the adults when the evening is winding down! Just don’t mix the pitchers up!
For something a bit more exotic, try Sweet Woodruff Lemonade. I’d never heard of sweet woodruff, but Elena from Happy Kitchen. Rocks. says, “Sweet woodruff is very popular in Germany. It is used to flavor sour beer, sweeten teas and soft drinks, jelly, jams and cakes.” Sounds delicious – and like one of the perfect gourmet lemonade recipes to add to our lemonade booth!
Which lemonades are you planning on trying this summer? Us? We’re going for them all!
