Kopykat Hot Dog on a Stick Lemonade

Ah, Hot Dog on a Stick.. the funny hats, the workers jumping up and down on the lemons (do they still do that??), the memories!

Hot Dog on a Stick Lemonade was hands down my favorite lemonade as a kids and teen.  It just tasted better. I think it was all that jumping up and down.  Basically when you squish the whole lemon into lemonade the oils come out of the peels and tastes good.

Today I have a Kopykat Hot Dog on a Stick Lemonade for you, and no, we are not going to stomp our lemonade but we will work on the peels for a few minutes to get some of those yummy lemon oils to come on out.

I hope you enjoy, this really to the best lemonade ever!
