    DD brought over a canister of Country Time Lemonade mix and a big bottle of Ginger ale. She used the ginger ale in place of water to mix the lemonade, sliced a lemon in the pitcher and poured over glasses of ice. So good and a nice treat on a hot day.

    Now we are thinking doing it with Kool Aid mix.

    We've used it in place of punch at parties. Nice twist on lemonade.

    Sounds good! You can also add a splash of grenadine or a handful of berries to the lemonade mix for another twist on the flavor. :)

    I have made strawberry lemonade from a similiar recipe, I use diet 7-up, sugar free lemonade mix , a handful of frozen sugar free strawberries, a 4 or 5 ice cubes. It's delicious, slushy sweet and fruity, and the best part is it's 0 points on WW Plus.

    Ok, I am just saying (not a hugh drinker but) a splash of vodka would make it a nice summer cocktail.

    Also I like mixing 1/2 ice tea and 1/2 lemonade for a great summer drink.

    Sounds great. I've used ginger ale in place of half the water in making jello. Gives it a nice zing.

    Yum! I was told by a woman who caters to mix Tropicana punch in carton with Ginger ale. She uses it at all her functions.
