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

  • 3 cups WATER
  • 1 Cup VODKA (OPTIONAL)
  • ICE
  • LEMON SLICES, FOR GARNISH
  • 1 Cup VODKA (OPTIONAL)
  • ICE
  • LEMON SLICES, FOR GARNISH

Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 450 degrees F (500 degrees F if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

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

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.

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

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