Smoky, sweet and tangy, this refreshing twist on lemonade will be the hit of the barbecue!



Bring sugar, honey and water to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla and cool (this can be done up to 3 days ahead).

Preheat grill to medium-high. Lightly oil grates.

Dip each lemon half, cut side down, in sugar. Place lemons on the grill, cut side down, and cook until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Cool and squeeze lemons through a strainer into a pitcher. Stir in sugar syrup, club soda, mint, ice and a few of the squeezed grilled lemons. Add a splash of bourbon, for the grown-ups.

Each serving: 140 cal, 0g fat (0g sat), 0mg chol, 30mg sodium, 35g carb, 2g fiber, 0g protein
