It’s easy to make a special July 4th drink. Just “heat up” a pitcher of cold lemonade with bright red jalapeño slices. Toss in a few blueberries and you’ve got a red, white and blue theme.

For less heat, remove the seeds and the white connective tissue.

Don’t want any heat? Replace the jalapeño with bright red cherries.

Start with a can of frozen lemonade, or make your own with fresh lemons (there’s a link to the recipe below).

  • For a different type of heat, substitute slices of fresh ginger for the jalapeño.
  • For a zero-calorie drink, use non-caloric sweetener.
  • For a low-glycemic drink, use agave nectar instead of sugar.
  • A shot of vodka or gin turns lemonade into a splendid cocktail.
  • You can also use this recipe to make fresh limeade, orangeade or grapefruitade.
  • After July 4th, varying the garnishes makes the recipe “new” each time.
