Lemonade is the quintessential Summer drink, but have you ever tried it grilled?! We took on the challenge and whipped up this deliciously refreshing recipe perfect for any outdoor gathering, picnic, or just because!
Grilled Lemonade (Virgin and Boozy)
- 16 lemons
- 1 cup sugar, plus more as needed
- 5 cups of water, divided
- ½ cup honey
- 2 sprigs rosemary
Clean and oil the grilling grate, and heat grill to medium-high. Place sugar in a medium-sized disposable aluminum pan. Dip each of the lemons, cut side down, into sugar. Place lemons on grill, cut side down, and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill.
Add 2 cups of water, honey, and rosemary to pan with sugar. Place pan on grill and whisk until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from grill and discard rosemary sprigs.
Squeeze lemons into a large bowl. Pour in honey and sugar syrup and 3 additional cups of cold water and stir to combine. Add additional water or sugar to taste. Transfer to large pitcher, pouring through a fine mesh strainer for a smoother lemonade, if desired. Add in ice to cool, then serve.
For boozy version, add a splash of bourbon. Your choice!
