Is strawberry lemonade and pink lemonade the same thing?
Not always. Strawberry Lemonade is always a combination of strawberries and lemons. Pink lemonade, however, could be colored pink with cranberries, raspberries, crushed strawberries, or red food dye. Most of the time if it’s homemade it is made with a red colored fruit. But if it’s a store bought recipe, it’s probably colored with red food dye.
How long does frozen lemonade last?
Frozen lemonade doesn’t last very long, especially on a hot summer day. The key to keeping frozen drinks frozen is to keep them in the freezer until it’s time to serve. You can always freeze the lemonade solid the night before a party and then let the frozen lemonade thaw just in time to serve. Another favorite hack of mine is to pour ginger-ale over frozen lemonade to add a sparkling twist to your frozen drink recipe!
Are lemons sweeter than strawberries?
This is a funny question because you’d think that strawberries would be sweeter than lemons. However, a lemon contains 70% sugar and a strawberry contains only 40% sugar. The reason that a lemon tastes sour instead of sweet, even though it has a high sugar content, is that a lemon contains a high amount of citric acid. The citric acid dominates the sweet taste of a lemon and results in a sour taste. Combine lemons and strawberries together with this Frozen Strawberry Lemonade Recipe and it’s the perfect sweet and sour combination!
