We make a version of Summer Brew, but it is 1 can lemonade, full can of vodka, and 3 beers....yummy in the summer around the pool!-01 Feb 2011

I was a little skeptical at first but really wanted a refreshing drink on a 97 degree day so I gave it a try and WOW it was fabulous! I followed the directions exactly (used vodka) poured it over ice, garnished with lime and could not believe how great this drink was! Before I knew it the whole pitcher was gone! (I made it for 3 people) This one you must try this summer!-05 Jun 2011

I made this as an alternative to Hurricanes for a Mardi Gras celebration. 5 gallons made, not much left was all the review I needed.-12 Mar 2011

So get ready for plenty of bright and zesty treats ahead&mdashthis collection of easy lemon desserts has something for every lemon lover out there.

If you're hosting a brunch party, surprising a friend with a batch of homemade treats, or simply looking to add some zing to your day, your plans should definitely involve one of these delicious lemon dessert recipes.

Just one quick tip before you start baking: If a recipe calls for lemon juice, press and roll your lemons against the counter first before you halve and squeeze them&mdashthis will help you get the most juice out of them!

20 Sweet Citrus Desserts

A hint of strawberry jam adds sweetness to tart grapefruit for a luscious accent to these light and airy desserts.

Tangy lemon curd whipped cream graces the top of this lemon zest-spiked bundt cake. It's packed full of bright fruit surprises to make you completely rethink what you thought you knew about bundt cakes.

Blood oranges pair well with a simple caramel sauce and a sprinkling of earthy, nutty cocoa nibs. Whether you douse a scoop of ice cream with it or enjoy it on its own, it's one delicious combination.

Bright, zest lemon curd makes this tart the star of any dessert table. Scattered with fresh berries, it'll have a gravitational pull on your guests.

With its billowy cloud of egg white chiffon and bright lemon and orange flavors, this light, creamy, and refreshing pie embodies a sunny California day &mdash the perfect pick-me-up for blustery winter evenings.

This amazing pudding sets from the acid in the lemon juice there's no need to add gelatin.

Clean, fresh, and icy-cold, this bracing tarragon-infused grapefruit sorbet is a perfect way to lift flagging spirits on a sultry day. Garnish with grapefruit zest and tarragon sprigs, if you like.

This refreshing chilled Key lime mousse is a perfect union of cream and foam, tangy lime and soft sweet custard. The method is simple but a little unusual &mdash you make a custard with fresh Key lime juice rather than milk or cream. The delicious results are well worth the break with tradition.

Cardamom lends a flowery note to this lemon cake, made with the zest and juice of two whole lemons. The entire confection gets an extra sweet drizzle of sugary lemon icing once it's cooled.

Individual ramekins filled with creamy cheesecake with an orange slice and blood orange gelée make for a stunning presentation and an irresistible flavor combination. Brightening citrus lightens up creamy cheesecake for a perfectly balanced end to the meal.

The ginger-molasses crust is a surprisingly flavorful contrast to the zesty lemon. Each flavor shines without overpowering the other.

Lemon bars are one of those treats that always seem to be the first to go at a potluck or cookie swap. This lightened-up version will go just as quickly.

"I love a hot fudge sundae, but this is more refreshing," says Jimmy Bradley about this light, citrusy mousse layered with orange granita and chopped almonds.

Airy and elegant, just as one would expect, these individual desserts surprise with the pleasantly bitter tang of red grapefruit and fresh ginger. Rest assured, there's plenty of rich egg to round out any sharp edges.

Chocolate and almond is an assertive enough combination to hold its own against pucker-worthy key lime. Make sure you have a Microplane on hand to get the most out of zesting your limes. It really makes a difference.

The perfume of individual lemon tarts fills the room as they bake. The Shakers get credit for this dessert with a lemony pucker-worthy filling that's baked in piecrust shells.

This festive olive-oil cake can be made with orange juice or Meyer lemon juice. Make this cake a day in advance so the flavors get a chance to intensify.

This simple lime pie has a fresh, tart citrus flavor that makes it a refreshing end to a meal any time of year.

When Matt Lewis became a baker, he started a quest to re-create the lemon Bundt cakes of his youth. After "a million different versions," he says, he achieved lemon-cake bliss, using the zest of 10 lemons and a little lemon extract to get the flavor just right. The cake has a moist crumb (thanks to a lemony syrup brushed over the top) and a crackling, sugary glaze.

These Citrus and Soy Shrimp Lettuce Cups Are the Easy Summer Dinner You Need

This low-carb, high-flavor recipe is your answer to hot summer nights when you want something healthy, but fast.

You can never go wrong with lettuce cups. They&aposre basically what happens when you load up what was supposed to be a lettuce wrap with so much filling that, well, wrapping it up is going to be a bit of a problem-a delicious problem, however. These Citrus and Soy Shrimp Lettuce Cups, created by Dana Sandonato of Killing Thyme, are all about piling iceberg lettuce sky-high with flavor-bomb ingredients. Here&aposs what&aposs inside: shrimp, veggies cooked in a citrusy sauce of soy, ginger, orange, and miso, chopped peanuts, and pretty microgreens. The result is a satisfying combo of textures and flavors in each bite. Resist the urge to eat the shrimp mixture by the spoonful the iceberg lettuce adds just the right amount of crunch.

This recipe is a low-calorie, low-carb option that can come together quickly for a weeknight meal or hit the spot for a relaxed Sunday night dinner. (Looking for more low-carb, high-veggie ideas? Try these Low-Carb Fish Tacos with a Fresh and Fruity Nectarine Salsa.) It can also easily be made gluten-free if you sub in tamari for soy sauce. These healthy shrimp lettuce cups are also great to bring to a party since they look pretty and can be served at room temperature. (Discover more party-perfect apps.)

Plus, each cup (or should we say boat, depending on how loud your stomach is growling) is filled with nutritional benefits. Shrimp is a heart-healthy way to get in your satisfying protein, and the Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, carrots, and peppers used here supply a nice amount of vitamin C. And you can always choose your own favorite mix of veggies for an easy way to customize the recipe. (Like this recipe?

What is the difference between Vinaigrette and Dressing?

Despite the fact that we usually call all salad dressings a “Dressing”, there is a slight difference between them.

Vinaigrette is a type of dressing that is made with oil and vinegar and has a light runny texture.

Dressing usually has more creamy texture and is based on mayonnaise, yogurt, vinegar and some other ingredients.

6 Summer Diffuser Blend Recipes

Tangerine & Lemongrass

This blend is a crisp reminder of the vibrant, active life of summertime!

Tangerine brings a bright, tart citrus scent. It’s not as mellow as Orange essential oil, but pretty similar in sweetness. I love it with Lemongrass essential oil. The Lemongrass has a fresh and outdoorsy smell that reminds me of a brisk walk in a sunny field. It’s grassy without being earthy. And Lemongrass essential oil is crisp and citrusy. A perfect complement to the briskness of the Tangerine.

Jade Lemon & Bergamot

This diffuser combination is my current favorite for summer. It’s bright, refreshing, and slightly sweet.

If you follow our Facebook videos you’ve definitely heard of Jade Lemon. It’s one of our very favorite oils that we use every day because of its lemon-lime complex scent. That’s the Bergamot. Even though Bergamot essential oil is from the rind of citrus fruit, it does have a slightly floral scent that makes it a great combination with Jade Lemon.

Palmarosa and Grapefruit

This diffuser recipe is perfect in our favorite aromatherapy necklace. It’s so feminine and uplifting!

The Palmarosa reminds me of a cross between Geranium and Rose. Yes! That’s a win for me. Think English garden. That is kicked up a notch with the fruity goodness of Grapefruit. I love to use Grapefruit when I want to feel cheerful and energized. This recipe does that PLUS having the floral touch of the Palmarosa.

Lemon and Jasmine

Another floral citrus combo, this summer diffuser recipe is romantic and happy.

The Lemon is sweet and citrusy, like diffusing sunshine into your room. This is mellowed out by the intoxicating scent of Jasmine. There’s no getting around the power of Jasmine to set the mood for love.

Lime and Citrus Fresh

Fun and fresh. That’s what I think of this recipe. The Lime added to the already amazing Citrus Fresh makes this diffuser blend festive and celebratory. This would be a great blend for a party.

Citrus Fresh is already so amazing and energizing. What could make it better?! Jazz it up with equal amount Lime and you’ve now got a scent that would be perfect for having company over. They’ll be recharged and refreshed by this wonderful combo.

Orange and Elemi

We had to throw in a little spice into our summer. This blend is a little bit citrus and a little bit of spice. This final summer diffuser recipe will help create a mellow and relaxed environment.

Elemi isn’t really a spice. It’s in the same family as Frankincense and Myrrh. But it does have a spicy and rich scent that creates the foundation for the Orange to shine. Orange is sweet and mellow.

These 6 Summer Diffuser Recipes are the perfect way to add a touch of summer to your home any time of year. We’d love to know what scents you are diffusing! We’re always looking for new combinations to fall in love with.
