Specialty lemonade: a great treat for hot weather

Summer is just weeks away. Sun-kissed customers will soon pick up their favorite cold beverages on their break from the beach.

Summertime allows for a great opportunity to bring in seasonal cold drinks. Need some ideas? Try out special lemonades with Big Train® Shaken Lemonade Mix, which is flavored with real honey.

This powder is delicious enough to create simple lemonade, but is also ideal for making an Arnold Palmer, an Oolong Lemonade, Floral Lemonade and much more.

Here is a little inspiration:

Arnold Palmer:

Combine 3 scoops of Big Train Shaken Lemonade with 2 ounces of hot water to a shaker. Stir the concoction until it dissolves. Next add 3 ounces of cold water and 6 ounces of black tea or oolong tea. Shake well, decorate with your favorite garnish and serve!

Flavored Frozen Lemonade:

Combine 3 scoops of Big Train Shaken Lemonade with 2 ounces of your favorite flavored syrup. We recommend a Monin® syrup for this particular mixture. Try mango, blackcurrant, cranberry or wildberry. Combine the mixture of powder and syrup with 4 ounces of water and a cup filled past the top with ice. Blend all ingredients together in a blender. Garnish and serve.

Floral Lemonade:

Combine 2 scoops of Big Train Shaken Lemonade Mix with 2 ounces of hot water to a shaker and stir until the powder dissolves. Next add 2-3 ounces of Monin rose or lavender syrup and 2/3 cups of ice to the mixture. Shake well, decorate with your favorite garnish and serve.

Very Pink Lemonade:

Combine 3 scoops of Big Train Shaken Lemonade Mix with 2 ounces of hot water to a shaker and stir until the powder dissolves. Once dissolved, add 1.5 ounces of Tea Zone® Raspberry Syrup or Tea Zone Strawberry Syrup to the shaker. Next add 2/3 cup of ice, 2 ounces of hot water and 6 ounces of cold water. Shake well and serve.
