I created the tasty Lime in the Coconut Cocktail last week and it was absolutely scrumptious so I decided to whip up this purple punch recipe for Sparkling Grape Lemonade this week!

I have to admit, I really don’t care much for regular lemonade; it’s too sour to suit me. But the tart citrus taste was absolutely heavenly when blended with the Grape Punch. And the carbonation of the Sprite added the perfect fizzy finishing touch to this purple punch recipe!

  1. This looks really good! I think I will try it this weekend. So many different combinations to try, too!

    My favourite summer beverages is iced coffee.

  2. Favorite summer drink is a drink my mother-in-law makes called Monkey’s Pajamas! Nice and cool with a splash of Banana Liquor, milk and some other stuff ha ha!

  3. I am in love with Strawberry Lemonade. I didn’t think it got any better than strawberries or lemonade until I had them together. Y-U-M! :) Drop some frozen strawberries in for ice cubes and you’re good to go. :)

  4. I like citrus drinks when it’s hot. Lemonade, grapefruit juice….but my favourite is limeade with a bit of mint. Crushed ice is nice, but not necessary!
