As the sun shines down on snow-covered Salt Lake (pretty as a picture), we’ve forgotten about fancy hot chocolates and gourmet teas. The sunshine puts another taste on our list of cravings, and this time, it’s the sweet and savory nectar of lemons. Good lemonade is like summer in a bottle.
We tracked down our favorite “pink” variety at Tony Caputo’s Market (314 West 300 South). From France-based Lorina, the 24.5-fluid-ounce bottle is cute and vintage-like with a metal lever lid that can easily be topped with a colorful bow for a housewarming gift or a fancier-than-normal beverage to bring to a barbecue.
The Pink Lemonade ($5.99 at Caputo’s) is a nice blend of tart and sweet, though it goes down a little dry—giving it a little authentic boost. The pink in the Pink Lemonade is a light and sweet color, making the beverage that much more attractive. It also comes in smaller, handheld-size 11.1-fluid-ounce portions that are perfect for complimenting a sandwich (Caputo’s, preferably) or sticking in a cooler.
If you’re willing to head to Park City’s World Market (6400 North Highway 224, next to TJ Maxx in Kimball Junction), you can pick up any of Lorina’s other five flavors: French Lemonade, Traditional Lemonade, French Berry Lemonade, Blueberry Lemonade, or Traditional Orangeade for as little as $3 to $4 per 24.5 fluid-ounce bottle. It’s also spotted from time to time at local Target stores at a similar price.
As spring fights her way in, keep your eyes open for this little dose of summer. It’s sure to brighten your day.
