Rainforest Cafe Copycat Strawberry Lemonade

When we go to Disneyland, we always eat at the famous RainForest Cafe because my kids can’t get enough of it! They love the fish in the aquarium, the grunting gorillas, and the rainstorms right in the middle! It is located in Downtown Disney by the Monorail so you can easily leave the park without walking a long ways. The other thing I love about it is the food. We usually don’t order drinks when we dine out, but I always make an exception when we go here. The Strawberry Lemonade is to die for! The fresh strawberries in the drink just makes it that much better. Since we don’t live anywhere close to a Rainforest Cafe I made up my own version and I must say, it is pretty darn close!

  1. I saw this on Pinterest and had lemons and strawberries on hand, so decided to try it. It turned out perfect, my kids and I love it!! I've tried a few different strawberry-lemonade recipes on Pinterest and this one is the best! I did add a bit more sugar for our taste - 1 & 1/4 cups. Thank you!!
