Review of Red Clover Lemonade

I found on one of the blogs I frequent this recipe and red-clover-lemonadeI thought I would try it.  The blog is New Life on a Homestead. The picture she took was just so pretty and we have this clover everywhere around here, so I had to give it a try.  We rode our bikes to Jacob’s dentist appointment yesterday and went by a field full of clover.

Red Clover Lemonade
  • 3 cups Red Clover blooms
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp honey
Boil the blooms in the water for 5-7 minutes. Strain; add lemon juice and honey to the remaining liquid. Stir, then chill for two hours. Serve over ice. Enjoy!


I put about 1 1/2 cups of Clover in a pan of 2 cups of water.  I didn’t pick enough clover so I had to alter the recipe.  I also only had pink lemonade mix so that is what I used and left out the honey.  I added 1 quart of water.


The finished product.  It tastes pretty good.  It is funny it has a honey taste and I didn’t use any.  It really just tastes like Pink Lemonade with honey in it.  You’ll have to try it too.
