Here at Bite Me More, we never shy away from a challenge, especially when it involves the ultimate triad: charity, creativity, and cuisine.
With that in mind, we sisters (the unstoppable team of “Lemonade Lisa” Gnat and Julie “Pucker Up” Albert) have banded together to create a Pink LemonAid recipe that legends are made of, a recipe to benefit Plan Canada’s Because I Am a Girl initiative and fundraise in support of girls’ rights and access to education, food, clean water, and personal safety in the developing world.
So how could we simultaneously quench neighborhood thirst and help girls a billion backyards away?
Simple. Create a lemonade stand that will bring all the boys (and girls) to the yard. While at first glance the traditional recipe for success seemed easy enough (lemon juice, a few cups of sugar, ice), we weren’t sold on it. This recipe wasn’t going to have them lined up around the block, especially when we might not be as adorable behind our plywood and paper signs as the young’uns of yore.
It took a bit of (delicious) taste testing, but we’ve come up with a premiere Pink LemonAid recipe, one that’s super easy to replicate, is scrumptious, show-stopping sips-in-a-straw (say that 3 times fast), and is guaranteed to have everybody reaching for their wallets.
