    This Grilled Lemonade Will Take Your Barbecue To The Next Level

    You'll never want regular lemonade again.

    Grilled Lemonade


    5-6 medium lemons

    1 lemon, sliced into rings

    1 cup white sugar, plus additional for coating

    4 cups water

    4 cups ice


    On a cutting board, halve the lemons and coat the cut sides with a thin layer of sugar.

    Place the lemons on the grill cut side down and cook them over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, until caramelized.

    Remove lemons from the grill and rest them for 5-10 minutes.

    Juice lemons over a fine mesh strainer into a half gallon pitcher. Once all the lemons are juiced, add the white sugar, lemon rings, water, and ice. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.


    NOTE: Do not add the ice if preparing ahead of time. Add the ice immediately before serving.
