For a refreshing, easy drink in the summer. Mix powdered lemonade mix with 7-Up, ginger ale or Sprite. Use the soda instead of water. Mix according to directions on the lemonade, add ice, and enjoy.

Rather than running to the store in the midst of cooking or baking you can substitute powdered lemon drink mix for lemon juice in a recipe. The sugar free version may work best for some recipes. This is a guide about substituting lemonade powder for lemon juice.
Use good old dry powder mix for your lemonade - I prefer Country Time, but any will do. Then, go over to the alcoholic mixers, but you won't be going to get drunk. You're just going to get the strawberry stuff. I like the kind that has the puree in it, not just the juice or flavoring.
Mix up the lemonade like you would for your family to drink in either 1 to 2 gallons. Then add the strawberry puree. It takes about 1/3 to 1/2 a big bottle to make it taste and look just right. Of course, you may have to sample it along the way to be sure it comes out all right. Serve it over ice and you've got yourself a very refreshing drink. It's yummy without all the work!
