Whipped Lemonade Is TikTok’s Latest Darling. Here’s How to Make the Summer Treat
It’s the new dalgona coffee.
Dalgona coffee was so 2020, and now there’s a new whipped beverage making the rounds on TikTok that’s perfect for summer. The new drink is called whipped lemonade, and as you may have guessed, it’s a fun take on the warm weather beverage that involves, well, whipping some lemonade to create a frothy, refreshing drink.
One of the most popular whipped lemonade TikTok videos, which was actually made last year, is from a user named @goldenxclouds. In the clip, the user seemingly combines whipping cream, strawberry lemonade Kool-Aid mix, ice and regular lemonade to craft the drink, which is topped with a layer of bright pink foam as well as a whole strawberry.
While dalgona coffee had a fairly standard recipe and method of preparation, TikTok users have taken different approaches to the whipped lemonade trend. Another TikToker who goes by the name @friendlyaesthetics made a more natural version of the drink by whipping fresh lemon juice and pouring it over some ice water before adding a touch of sugar.
While this version isn’t quite as vibrant, it’s easy to make and still boasts that frothy layer that makes freshly whipped drinks so fun. It’s also just as impressive. One commenter wrote “WOAH,” while another called the clip “so satisfying.”
A third TikTok user created their own take on whipped lemonade by vigorously stirring an egg white and mixing it with some pink lemonade mix and sugar before pouring the pastel mixture into a cup of regular lemonade with ice.
And before you question the use of the egg white, remember that bartenders and mixologists often add egg white to cocktails in order to give them a creamy, frothy quality.
