Sherry Lemonade


My mom is very blasé about this recipe.  She made it all the time in the seventies and it’s all of two steps, so when I crowed about it she thought I was being a little silly.

But it deserves fuss-making because it’s homemade, ice cold, slurpy and sweet.  As Lydia said, it’s an adult slushy.  It was new to me and I hope it’s new to you too because you’re going to really enjoy that first sip.

See the slush?

Here’s the recipe:

Mix equal parts frozen lemonade and dry sherry in a blender with a lot of chipped ice.  Blend until thick and serve over more ice.

If you use the Minute Maid frozen lemonade you can add the lemonade and use the empty tube to measure the sherry. No mess!

So refreshing.

Enjoy with our Memorial Day menu, serve at a luncheon or shower, or share with friends (or your mom) on a sunny day.

Thanks, Margy!

    This is amazing! Major hit to all who have tried it in the last 36 hours since we made it for the shoot. Thanks Margy, a classic for sure. xo, LEH

    How does a gal get herself invited to one of these fab photo shoots?

    Will work for adult slushy.

    I made a “Sweet Tea Lemonade” this weekend using some freshly steeped tea, vodka and lemonade over muddled mint leaves, garnished with lemon slices. Oh so good — and will have to try this one too!
