Hot Dog on a Stick's Frozen Lemonade Copycat Recipe

Welcome back, summer! It was sooooooo warm yesterday, and it's expected to get up to the 80's today! It's about 9:30am and my daughter is already out on the porch doing "experiments" with lemons, jell-o and food coloring. I heard her say, "Oh my gosh! My hypothesis was right AGAIN!" so it sounds like she's having herself some fun in the sun. Later today I'm taking each of my girls on a one-on-one Mommy-daughter date to soak up the sun together.

With it being so warm yesterday, while we were out I got an intense craving for something fruity and refreshing. I finally figured out exactly what I wanted. A frozen lemonade from Hot Dog on a Stick. They are my FAVORITE. Unfortunately, the nearest one was about 15 miles away.

I decided I could just make my own. Like, how hard can it be? I'd made my own homemade lemonade recipe before and it turned out amazing, so this shouldn't be any different. Still, I was hoping to be able to find a copycat recipe on the net somewhere to double check any secret ingredients. I couldn't find a single thing!

What I came up with, I think, could be sold at Hot Dog on a Stick and no one would know the difference between theirs and mine. I was SOO happy! My girls went nuts over it, too. It had quenched my craving for a fruity and refreshing drink and I can't wait to have some more today.

I am sure there are plenty of different ways to make frozen lemonade, but I wanted a specific taste. It had to be like Hot Dog on a Stick's, and it is. Therefore, I give you, Hot Dog on a Stick's Frozen Lemonade copycat recipe-


What you will need:

  • 1 C hot water
  • 1 C + 1 T sugar
  • 1 C fresh lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
  • 7 C ice
Directions:
  • Make a simple syrup by dissolving 1 C sugar into 1 C hot water
  • Juice your lemons
  • Add lemon juice and syrup to a blender
  • Add 1 C of ice at a time and blend together
