3 Flavors of Lemonade- Watermelon-Berry, Basil, and Cool-as-a-Cuke

I saw these 3 lemonade recipes in a recent issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.

At first I was only going to make the Watermelon-Berry version for our 4th of July celebration, but then I decided to try them all. We have quite a few cucumber lovers in our family and basil makes everything amazing, so I halved each of the recipes and we had all 3 flavors!

All 3 of these lemonades can be made ahead of time, so that made the preparation very easy.
The watermelon-berry was the most popular. It was definitely the favorite of all the kids, but the other flavors were just as delicious and everyone was glad that we had so many varieties to choose from.

I figure we still have some hot days ahead and I might just make a couple more batches of any of these lemonades and turn them into some kind of frozen ice pops.

We are driving to Nashville tonight to go see Andy Davis in concert. I am pretty excited. Have a great weekend!

Wow - these all look fantastic, Mary Ann! I might just have to track down the ingredients so I could make them on vacation this week. Have a great time in Nashville - sounds like such a blast!

All of those look wonderful - I'm definitely intrigued by the cucumber one, but I *know* I'd love the watermelon-berry one!

Oh wow, they all look so refreshing and delicious! I've been buying different flavored lemonades at Trader Joe's, but I really should try making my own too. Hope you have a great time at the concert!

All variations sound delicious, but I would really like to try the basil version.

I can't decide which I want to try first. They all look wonderful!

Each one of these sounds so scrumptious! I would definitely have to try the basil one first.
