Recipe Inspiration: State Fair Lemon Shake-Ups!

Outside the Box Papers Lemon Shake ups

We're showing off how to make some delicious and classic State Fair Lemon Shake Ups today! It's prime season for a sparkly and sweet drink. Topped with some of our vintage, paper straws these sips make for the best shower drinks and birthday party treats.

Ingredients: (making 2 drinks)

  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • Lemons
  • Ice Cubes
  • 1/2 cup of ice water

The secret to the most perfect lemon shake-up is to boil the water and dissolve the sugar inside. Then grab one of your lemons and juice it! Pour the lemon juice into the sugary syrup you just made. Then put it in the fridge to chill.

Now it's time to crush up your ice! After the ice is blended a bit, it's time to shake up the chilled syrup and ice with your cold water. Literally shake this all up in a cocktail shaker, garnish with a slice of lemon and, VOILA!, you've made a delicious State Fair Lemon Shake-Up!
