Kid-Friendly Hawaiian Lemonade

Hawaiian Lemonade

Often times when we have company over, Mom Juice or an otherwise, girly fun drink makes an appearance.  Without fail, the kids ask to have some, quickly drawn in by the colors of the drinks and the random maraschino cherry, no doubt.  Last week, when The Neighbors came over for dinner, I thought I’d do a new drink just for the kids.  Well, who are we kidding, of course we snagged some for ourselves too.  And why not?  This one was a total keeper and quickly got a big thumbs up from the kids.  A few juices combined with ice and ginger ale, it will be easy to keep the ingredients on hand any time we want to whip up a batch of Kid Juice.  I don’t think they’ll mind one little a bit.

In a large punch bowl (I used a pitcher), combine two cups ice cubes, a 12 ounce can chilled pineapple juice, a 12 ounce can chilled apricot nectar, 3/4 cup frozen lemonade concentrate and 3/4 cup water. Slowly pour 1-1/4 cups chilled ginger ale down inside the bowl. Makes 6 servings.

This looks yummy, but where do you find the apricot?

Definitely will be consumed by this mama, as well as her kiddos. Thanks for the fun drink recipe!

Jaimie – I find the apricot juice in the Hispanic section of my local grocery store (Shop Rite). They have a number of tropical juices. I want to say it was Goya brand, but don’t hold me to it. :)

When I was a kid I remember always wanting to drink the grown up drinks. My parents usually pacified me by getting me a Shirley Temple. THis looks like it would have been great as well. In fact, I could use some now! It would also be a great base for an adult drink!
