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.




  • In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups of the water and the sugar. Bring to a boil; remove from heat.

  • Stir in lemon juice and 8 sliced radishes. Let stand, uncovered, 20 minutes.

  • Stir in remaining 3 cups water.

  • Remove radishes with a slotted spoon. Serve over ice with fresh cucumber and radish slices, or a whole radish.
