Blue Cotton Candy Lemonade

Even if you haven't tried the Blue Cotton Candy Lemonade served at Disneyland, take my word for it: this homemade version is amazing. 

Ingredients

  • Ice, Lots
  • 6 cups water, cold
  • 1 & 1/2 cups lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1 & 1/2 cups Cotton Candy Snow Cone Syrup, *
  • 10 ounces Cotton Candy, **
  • lemons, more to garnish
  • straws

Instructions

  •  Add ice to a 3-quart pitcher.
  • Add 6 cups of cold water to the pitcher.
  • Juice the lemons. It's much easier to use an electric citrus juicer, but elbow grease works fine too. Add the lemon juice to the pitcher.
  • Add the Cotton Candy Snow Cone Syrup to the pitcher and stir.
  • Pour each glass and garnish with lemons in the glass or on the rim. Add two straws to each glass: one to sip from, and the other to spear your cotton candy. The cotton candy can't touch the lemonade, it dissolves instantly! Let your guests add the cotton candy to their glass, it's so fun. You will want about a fist size hunk of cotton candy for each glass. I used a candy-apple stick to hold the cotton candy in a few of the photos above, it worked great.

Notes

  • A large lemon has about 1/4 of juice, if you're lucky. Buy at least 6-7 lemons, 8-9 to be on the safe side (just for juicing. Buy more for garnish)
This lemonade is QUITE sour as written. The cotton candy sweetens it, so each person can adjust the sweetness level as they like. Start tart. You can always add more. (More syrup, or more cotton candy, either way.)
