How to Make Fresh Lemonade, TikTok’s Latest Viral Recipe

Labor Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means: the unofficial last day of summer. If you're looking for a sign to make the most of what little sunshine and summer fun we have left, this is it. If you've been into foodie TikTok lately, you've probably heard about the raw lemonade trend that's taking off. Allow me to let you in on a little secret: This delicious treat is the definition of refreshing, and there's no doubt you need a drink to round out summer 2021.

When a trend goes viral on TikTok, you know there's something to it. TikTok users are known to be very honest when it comes to taste testing, so the fact that this trend has continued throughout the summer is a great sign that this drink will stand the test of time. I’ve rounded up the best, best, whipped lemonade TikToks – trust me, there’s no shortage of concoctions here.

But first, let's start with the classics. There are two similar methods of making drinks. The first step is to combine all the ingredients in a blender. This creates an icy frozen drink. Another method is to use a frother or mixing stick and add ice cubes after blending. By using it, your drinks will become even more whipped and creamy.

For starters, you only need four ingredients:

How to Flavor with Alcohol…

A little party never hurt anyone. Add some booze to spice up your Labor Day Creamy Lemonade. I mean, it's the end of summer, so we should celebrate accordingly, right? !

Rich Whipped Alcohol Lemonade:

raw material:

  • 3 cups ice
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • Rum of your choice (according to your preference)

NOTE: Malibu works great for me.


  1. Combine ice, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and rum in a blender.
  2. Mix it up, pour it into a chilled glass, top it with fresh lemon, and boom! You've treated yourself to a boozy glass of whipped lemonade.

As I’m sure you’ve figured out, there’s not just one way to make this drink. That's why it's so versatile. There's still a little while until summer ends, so take this as an opportunity to make as many creamy lemonades as you can and be sure to post your concoctions to TikTok. Happy sipping!
