If there’s one thing that marks the Summer season in my mind, lemonade might just be it, so I thought it would be fun to make an adult lemonade stand.
It will not only quench your guests’ thirst, but the best part is, garnishes are easy, options are limitless and everyone will love it!
If you’ve ever had spiked lemonade, you know how refreshing it is. It’s actually one of my favorites! It’s the perfect simple cocktail for a summer party or small get together.
To create your own Lemonade Bar, set up an area with everything guests will need to create their own refreshing beverage. Pour lemonade into a pitcher or beverage dispenser and be sure to have extra ready and on hand.
Options! People need to have options, right? I mean, plain lemonade is lovely, but raspberry peach lemonade, pineapple ginger lemonade and blueberry mint lemonade? That’s just magical!
We picked four, delicious syrups to add extra flavor and sweetness to our lemonade stand. Hibiscus Lavender, Elderflower, Watermelon and Passion Fruit. I found these great glass bottles for the syrups and used this label maker to create the labels.
Remember, syrups are sweet so make sure not to sweeten your lemonade to much. Other great options for mixers are lemon-lime soda, seltzer water, iced tea, or a scoop of lemon sorbet. Get creative and have fun.
Now let’s get to the fun part. We didn’t want to spike the entire pitcher of lemonade with one specific type of liquor so we decided to buy a variety of travel size liquor bottles so guest could choose what they like and maybe even try a few different options. (wink, wink)
Finally, provide a few garnishes to finish off each drink. We provided mint and lemon slices. A few other garnishes to consider are fresh berries, lavender, and honey sticks.
No bar is complete without a few special treats, so we added some ginger lemon cookies, macaroons and some lemon rolled wafers!
As for decor, find a beautiful statement piece. We chose to do this with this great lemon wreath I found on Amazon. A beautiful flower arrangement would be another great way to add a touch of charm and class to your lemonade bar.
We finished the bar off with these lemon cocktail napkins, lemon patterned paper straws, some stirrers and some beautiful green glassware.
Just add the already made lemonade into a glass, add a flavored syrup, your favorite spirit and top it off with some garnishes, that’s it!
Entertain in style at your next party and set-up a refreshing Lemonade Bar for Adults. They are so simple to do, will impress your guests and since it’s self-serve, it will leave you plenty of time to enjoy some stress-free summer entertaining.
What add-ins would you try with your glass of refreshing lemonade?
I can’t wait to see what you come up with and hear about your favorite concoctions!
