PV Lemonade - This is used as the base of our recipe, we'll add layers on top of this flavour. It's very refreshing but it's quite bitter and sharp alone.

PV Berry Supreme - This is a mixed berry flavour, suitable for use with any berry type recipe. For the purposes of this recipe we'll be using it at quite a low percentage, we don't really need to taste the berries, we just need enough to turn our regular lemonade in to a pink lemonade.

PV Cotton Candy - This may seem like an odd flavour to use in a lemonade, however used at low percentages it can be treated as a sweetener, it's not as harsh on coils as sucralose and as an added bonus, it works towards toning down the sharp edges off the lemons in this recipe.

PV Citric Acid - This is a great additive to add to any citrus flavour, just 0.5% of this will provide us with a slightly sour effect, which for the purposes of this recipe will give us that extra bit of tang we are looking for in a pink lemonade. 

TFA Dragonfruit - This flavour used at low percentages is great for making some fruits taste brighter and wetter, 2% in our recipe will make the recipe taste less like a lemon and more like a lemonade.

TFA Lemon - Quite a bitter lemon flavour, you can almost detect the rind in this one, we'll be using just a touch of this to add a more natural lemon flavour to the mix.

There you have it, your classic USA inspired pink lemonade liquid is done. Perfect for those hot summer nights.

Steeping suggestion

This recipe is pretty much good to go, a couple of days steep wouldn't hurt - but it isn't mandatory.
