I am always incredibly hesitant to post drink recipes. We don’t drink coffee, tea, or alcohol and it seems like no one cares about drinks that don’t involve those three. It’s like I’m the one standing in the corner with kool-aid while the entire party walks around with champagne. I’m fully aware that  a non-alcoholic drink isn’t that news breaking of a recipe, but this one has to be posted because gosh darnit, when it comes to a luncheon, bridal shower, baby shower or birthday party everyone needs drink recipe ideas and Lindy’s Lemon Ice has long been my favorite.

 

My friend Lindy is one of those people that has been blessed with a kind heart, perfect style, interior decorating and happens to be an amazing cook. You’d almost want to be envious but she has such a good soul it’s far better to just learn from her. This lemon ice drink recipe is her’s and we’ve used it for years now. The pebble ice from sonic is a must and the citric acid is bought in the pharmacy but don’t panic, it gives a nice little zing to the drink. It’s refreshing and perfect.

 

What is Citric Acid?

Citric Acid is an organic acid found in citrus fruits.

It offers certain benefits which increase energy when used as a supplement.

It is also good for the skin.

Citric Acid is also a light, refreshing flavor enhancer when used in drinks and food.

 

Will Lemonade Help With Kidney Stones?

Studies have shown that limeade, lemonade and other fruit juices that are high in citrate offer stone preventative benefits.

However, high sugar content can increase kidney stone risk.

 

Will Lemonade Hydrate You?

The acid in lemonade will stimulate the production of saliva, making you feel hydrated.

Acidic drinks wet the mouth and give the impression of hydration even after you have finished the drink.

  1. What is sonic ice

  2. This recipe sounds very tasty. Does it use the type of citric acid made for canning and making pickles?

  3. We will have to try this. My daughter and I have been searching for an outstanding recipe for her lemonade stand. There’s a big race coming through town. She wants to raise money for a mission trip by setting up during the race!
    Thanks so much for the recipe!
