Try-It-Tuesday

Lemonade Slurpers

Find some stick candy. (I had to get this from a candy store.) I think the best flavor is peppermint, but my kids also like grape or strawberry.

Get some nice big lemons and roll them all around on the counter. Get them nice and squishy. Then wash them off.

Cut a small slit in the peel. I think a V shape works great.

Break a candy stick in half and shove it in the lemon.

Give the lemons a good squeeze (the more you squeeze, the more juice you'll get), then suck the juice up the candy stick.

Tastes like a gourmet lemonade! Try the peppermint, you won't be disappointed.

What a neat idea! At first I thought it would be way sour, but the more I think about it, I realize the candy sticks would make it nice and sugary. I think I'll have to con my mom into sending me some candy sticks from See's so we can try this out!

(Me...I'd be looking for a lime or a tangerine stick :-)

I got this idea from a family reunion I went to a few years ago. They served these and I loved them.
