Cool off this summer with an Easy 3-Ingredient Orangeade Drink. Refreshing and tasty, it’s the perfect beverage for an end-of-summer celebration. The Jewel-Osco Anniversary Sale happening August 1st-14th makes shopping for these festive drink recipe ingredients that much easier and affordable!
We love to have casual backyard get-togethers, especially when the weather is more mild, towards the end of summer. We keep it kid-friendly since all of our friends have young kids. I love to make it easy and effortless, so everyone can relax and have a good time.
One of my favorite party hacks for kid-friendly celebrations is to serve drinks in pitchers. That way you can pre-mix fun drinks and serve them easily to a crowd. Recently, I grabbed Gatorade G Series, Lemon Lime and Tropicana 100% Pure Orange Juice, No Pulp at Jewel-Osco. More on the can’t-miss Jewel-Osco Anniversary Sale in a minute! My plan was to use our favorite orange juice (Tropicana) to make a special, festive orangeade for the kiddos.
You guys know I love simple, so I keep this drink down to 3 ingredients: Tropicana, lemonade, and a splash of cherry juice. Of course, I finished it off with stemmed cherries for an eye-catching garnish!
To serve, just combine equal parts Tropicana and lemonade in a big pitcher and add a good splash of cherry juice. The red juice will rest on the bottom, making a nice tropical sunset effect. Set some fun glasses (we like mason jars) with ice and colorful straws. Kids and parents can pour their own, making it self-serve and super easy for the hosts. By offering crowd-pleasing drink options, like Tropicana and Gatorade, everyone can cool off with a icy beverage that they love.
- 1 bottle Tropicana 100% Pure Orange Juice, No Pulp, 59 fl oz
- 1 bottle lemonade, about 59 fl oz (equal part to Tropicana)
- 1/4 cup cherry juice
- 1 handful stemmed cherries, optional, for garnish
- Combine lemonade and Tropicana in a large pitcher.
- Pour in cherry juice (will settle to the bottom).
- Serve alongside glasses with ice, garnish with stemmed cherries.

Jewel-Osco has both of these drink ingredients on sale during their Anniversary Sale, which runs from August 1st-14th. It’s our go-to store for quality products at budget-friendly prices. I’ll be sure to hit up the Anniversary Sale and grab some of our favorites, like Doritos, Nacho Cheese; Pepsi, 12 pack cans; Tropicana 100% Pure Orange Juice, No Pulp; Lay’s Classic Potato Chips; Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Maple & Brown Sugar; Gatorade G Series, Lemon Lime; Quaker Life breakfast cereal; and Pure Leaf Unsweetened Iced Tea.
We’re always looking for party necessities since we love to host during the summer. Another way to make parties more kid-friendly is to use paper products whenever possible. Paper plates, cups, and even fun straws. They are all easy on the wallet and make clean-up a breeze. I usually purchase a couple of inexpensive plastic or lined paper tablecloths that we can just roll up and throw away when the party is over.
In addition to finding easy ways to save on party necessities, I’m always thinking of shortcuts to creating kid-friendly parties for family and friends. Drink stations and paper party supplies are definitely easy ways to keep it fun and simple. Grab some Gatorade G Series, Lemon Lime and Tropicana 100% Pure Orange Juice, No Pulp and make some yummy Orangeade this weekend!
