When I think about Christmas, red and green is what comes to my mind. I love adding a red and green touch to everything around the house, with a hint of gold. So when I was thinking of a Christmas drink, it was the red and green colors that I wanted to get. And this lemonade recipe will probably be one of the easiest you can make.
For the red color, you can use any red color fruit crush – like a strawberry, raspberry or cranberry crush. And for the green color, we want something lighter than the fruit crush so that it floats on top. So a green color soda like a mountain dew is a great option. And since it is a lemonade, you do need some crush lemon and some mint leaves too, if you like the flavour.
Since the fruit crush as well as mountain dew is already sweet, I do not feel the need to add any other sweetener while making this lemonade. But yes, that is personal choice!
