When life hands you lemons, make our sweet, tart and oh-so-refreshing twists on classic lemonade: Fresh Lemonade with Grilled Lemons & Watermelon and Sweet Tea Lemonade. - McCormick Test Kitchens

 Few things are as refreshing as a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Here, we shake things up with five new, flavorful ways to make this warm-weather drink.

1. Classic Fair-Style Lemonade (makes 1 large glass): In a cocktail shaker, place 2 tablespoons sugar, the juice of 2 lemons, 1 cup cold water and 4 or 5 ice cubes. Put the top on and shake the mixture vigorously to combine the ingredients and dissolve the sugar. Serve over ice.

2. Honey-Blueberry Lemonade (makes 1 large glass): In a large glass, muddle 2 tablespoons honey with ½ cup blueberries to combine. Add the juice of 2 lemons and 1 cup cool water. Stir well to combine. Serve over ice.

3. Strawberry-Basil Lemonade (makes 1 large glass): In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2 tablespoons sugar with ¾ cup quartered strawberries and 2 small sprigs of basil. Add the juice of 2 lemons and 1 cup cool water. Put the top on and shake the mixture vigorously to combine the ingredients and dissolve the sugar. Serve over ice.

4. Coconut-Mint Lemonade (makes 1 large glass): In a cocktail shaker, muddle 2 tablespoons sugar with 2 small sprigs of mint. Add the juice of 2 lemons, ¾ cup cool water and ⅓ cup coconut milk. Put the top on and shake the mixture vigorously to combine the ingredients and dissolve the sugar. Serve over ice.

5. Green Tea Lemonade (makes 1 large glass): In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons sugar with 2 teaspoons matcha powder (aka green tea powder) and ¼ cup warm water. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Transfer to a large glass and stir in the juice of 2 lemons and 1 cup cold water. Stir until well combined. Serve over ice.
