You read that right! Radishes turn this tangy homemade lemonade a soft pink color, and they lend a faint, garden-fresh flavor--similar to the taste of cucumber slices in water. In fact, we added cucumber slices as well, as a perfect summer garnish.


  • 5 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 8 radishes, sliced (9 ounces)
  • Cucumber and/or radish slices or whole radishes with greens (for garnish)


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of the water and the sugar. Bring to a boil; remove from heat.
  2. Stir in lemon juice and 8 sliced radishes. Let stand, uncovered, 20 minutes.
  3. Stir in remaining 3 cups water.
  4. Remove radishes with a slotted spoon. Serve over ice with fresh cucumber and radish slices, or a whole radish.
