This Fourth of July, follow in the footsteps of the First Ladies of the White House by serving some punch at your next get together!

Here are three recipes that you and your child can make together. It's a perfect activity to help your child learn and practice his measuring skills! In keeping with the holiday theme, these three recipes use red summer fruit and draw on the White House tradition of serving lemonade on the Fourth of July. For an especially festive touch, try serving these drinks on ice with a colorful, homemade patriotic drink parasols!

Did you Know: 
Lemonade was actually once a “political” issue in the White House! From 1877 to 1881, our First Lady, Lucy Webb Hayes, the wife of President Rutherford B. Hayes, refused to serve alcohol in the White House. Lucy was a devoted Methodist and supporter of the Temperance (anti-alcohol) movement in the United States. Instead of alcohol, she served lemonade at White House gatherings. It was the source of a fair amount of controversy back then! To thank Lucy, the Women’s Christian Temperance Union commissioned a full length portrait of her which hung in the White House. Some of her less supportive constituents gave her the nickname “Lemonade Lucy”!
