Lemony Cooler

Everyone thinks I've gone to a lot of trouble when making this refreshing summer drink, but it's so easy! I also like to make my own pretty ice cubes by adding 1/2 cup lemon juice and a mint sprig to 4 cups water.—Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin

    This was very lemony and I loved it. Great to sip outside in the summer. Thank You!

    While this was easy, it didn't have enough lemon flavor and was just a bit odd tasting. So I'd use this idea again but maybe pick a different juice.

    Love this!! The lemon juice brightens up the grape juice, and the club soda cuts the sweetness making it sweet, tart and refreshing all at once.
