I love a good family gathering. Lemonade is always my #1 drink choice. It’s so versatile that I chose to make a DIY lemonade stand and I’m showing you how. 

The first step when creating making a DIY lemonade stand is to buy all of your ingredients. Minute Maid® Lemonade is a staple in our house that we always buy at our local Publix. We’re lucky enough to have 2 stores near our house so there’s no shortage of Minute Maid® Lemonade near us. You can find the closest store to you with the Publix store locator and save $1 when you buy any (2) 2-liters with an in-store coupon. You can also earn $1 on a 12-pack of 12oz cans with Ibotta.

My family loves a variety so I chose to incorporate both regular and strawberry lemonade into our stand. For an extra fun mix, I made Minute Maid Lemonade heart-shaped ice cubes for anyone who wanted a lemony kick to their drink. I placed all of the ingredients on a table along with some garnishes like strawberries, lemons, and drink umbrellas. Our DIY lemonade stand was so colorful and festive, and perfect for summer. This custom lemonade stand sign added the perfect finishing touch to our lemonade stand. What I love most about lemonade is that it pairs well with virtually anything. This DIY lemonade stand perfectly compliments my bbq beef brisket and twice baked potatoes for any summer gathering.

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

  1. Add 4 strawberries to a glass
  2. Crush the strawberries in the glass using a fork or a spoon
  3. Fill the glass with Minute Maid® Lemonade
  4. Add heart shaped lemon ice cubes and garnishes to liking
  5. Top with a festive summer colored umbrella
  6. Enjoy!

You can use other fruits like watermelon, mangos or pineapples in place of the strawberries for a fun twist when making your DIY lemonade stand.

    I love Minute Maid lemonade and I always add fresh lemons to mine just to give it that extra fresh taste. It’s daughters favorite as well. When the hubby is getting on my nerves I add vodka

    As hot as it’s been lately, I’m sure anyone would appreciate having a nice cool glass of lemonade at the family function! I never thought to crush strawberries in lemonade before, now I have to try it.
