Me and my lemonade recipe - contest

Since we can’t taste your lemonade right now – We want you to get our taste buds going by telling us all about it!

If you haven’t come up with your own unique lemonade recipe yet now is good time to get in the kitchen and start experimenting! (with mentor/parental help)

So, we want to know….

What makes your recipe unique? How did you decide on your flavor – Is it a classic recipe or a fun flavor? Is it sweet or sour? Did you have help coming up with your recipe? 

 Tell us all about your recipe in a short paragraph answering those questions plus a picture or video showing us your lemonade. You can even share your recipe with us if you would like but we understand if it is top secret!

 

To enter the contest please submit the following two things:

  • 1.  A short paragraph answering the above questions plus anything else about you recipe you’d like to share

 

  • 2a.  A picture of you and your finished lemonade or of you making your recipe

Or

  • 2b. A video (about 1min or less) of you making your recipe or talking about your recipe (if you upload to YouTube send us the link!)
