Frog Lemonade


Pineapple Lemonade

Makes about 1 gallon

This delightful drink is named for the mascot of the Picayune newspaper. The drink was first served at a big charity event held for the benefit of a home set up to house the boys who sold newspapers in New Orleans.


  • 3 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 liter seltzer (1 bottle)
  • 18 strawberries
  • 1 small pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into pieces
  • 2 lemons, sliced paper thin
  • 1 block ice
  • Crushed ice


In a punch bowl, combine the lemon juice and sugar with 6 cups of water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the pineapple juice, seltzer, strawberries, pineapple pieces, and lemon slices. Add a large block of ice.

To serve, fill each glass 1/3 full of crushed ice. Pour in lemonade, making sure to include a strawberry, a piece of pineapple, and a lemon slice.
