What's this?

Cool off with this refreshing Traeger take on a classic. Fresh-cut lemons are dipped in sugar and grilled to caramelized perfection before getting squeezed into a Smoked Simple Syrup and ice cold water mix.

Ingredients

  • 16 Whole Lemons, cut in half

  • 1/2 Cup turbinado sugar

  • 3 Cup Traeger Smoked Simple Syrup

  • 3 Cup water

  • 1 Cup vodka

  • lemon slices, for garnish

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 500°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Dip lemons cut side down, into the turbinado sugar. Place lemons cut side down directly on the grill grate and grill 5 to 10 minutes or until grill marks develop and sugar is caramelized. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
  • 3

    Once the lemons are cool enough to handle, squeeze juice from lemon halves into a medium bowl. Run the lemon juice through a strainer and into a large pitcher.
  • 4

    Add in simple syrup, vodka (if using), and 3 cups water. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust with more lemon juice, sugar or water until lemonade reaches desired balance.
  • 5

    Add ice and serve. Garnish with lemon slices and mint if desired. Enjoy!
