Pineapple Lemonade

on June 23, 2014

I know – this recipe actually says “Cool Drink”. Well, I have renamed it Pineapple Lemonade. You really get the taste of pineapple AND lemon in this “cool drink” just right for a hot summer day. This one comes from one of Grandma’s sisters and looks like it originally came from her daughter, who just happens to be my godmother! I think this is meant to be a punch but I made it to put into glasses for a family event.

Cool Drink

This is my new favorite summer drink/treat!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Pineapple Lemonade

Mix together:

2 packages lemon Kool Aid

1 large can pineapple juice

2 cups white sugar

2 quarts water

1 bottle ginger ale

Lemon sherbet can be added on top.


My store didn’t have lemon sherbet so I used pineapple sherbet.

Pineapple sherbet made it taste more pineapple-y.

I’m sure lemon sherbet would make it taste more lemon-y.

I think vanilla ice cream would be great in this, too.


This makes a big recipe that would be great in a punch bowl for a party.

Just float the sherbet on top of the punch!


I used 1 cup of lemonade, 1 cup of ginger ale, and 2 scoops of sherbet per glass.

Notice the mint from my Herb Pots!

This is a delicious “cool drink” for your summer time get-together.

Give it a try!
