There may technically only be sixteen days left of summer, but sixteen days is still plenty of time to consume a delicious homemade, spiked pear-berry-orange lemonade. I had a half bottle of Moscato wine left over from a sangria recipe I found on Buzzfeed Tasty’sFacebook page. I also had ginger ale and strawberry lemonade in the fridge and randomly wondered “what would all three of these delicious beverages taste like mixed together?” After doing a bit more brainstorming of delicious ingredients to add to this mixture, I couldn’t have been happier with the end result. The perfect combination of fresh fruits gives this drink the perfect end of summertime taste!
Prep Time: 20 mins | Serves: 6
1 lbs. strawberries
1 medium orange
2 medium pears
350 mil. white wine
1 can (1.5 cups) strawberry lemonade
1 can (1.5 cups) ginger ale
*optional: 2-3 shots rum or tequila*
Thoroughly wash your fruits before using them. Once your fruit are clean: cut your strawberries into quarters, slice your oranges then cut them in half, and dice your pears into bit size pieces. Throw all of your prepared fruit into your pitcher.
Pour your white wine (I used Moscato) into the pitcher with the fruit, cover, and chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. If your wine is not chilled prior to using it, chill the fruit and wine mixture in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
*If you’re adding rum or tequila shots to the drink add it to the fruit and wine mixture prior to chilling.
Once your drink is chilled add your cans or cups of ginger ale and strawberry lemonade to the pitcher. Stir the mixture well to combine all of the beverages together. Get yourself a wine glass, pour some of your delicious lemonade in it, and enjoy!
