Be sure to chill the soda before adding it to the lemonade/pineapple juice mixture.
STEP FOUR: Pour into glasses over ice and garnish with lemon slices and pineapple chunks if desired.

How To Serve
Serve this delicious drink in a pretty glass pitcher, punch bowl, or beverage dispenser with floating pineapple rings or lemon slices for a picture-perfect drink.
If you are serving in individual glasses, add frozen pineapple chunks in the glasses in place of ice cubes. They work well for keeping the drink cold and don’t water it down the way the ice cubes would as they melt.

MORE LEMONADE RECIPES
IN THE FRIDGE: This drink will lose its carbonation (fizz) after a couple of hours, so it is best to serve right away. Even without the fizziness, it still has a nice flavor and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
You could also leave out the soda and add it in at the last minute if you want to make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for a day or two before serving.
IN THE FREEZER: We do not recommend freezing any of the components of this drink, it is best made fresh.
This fresh pineapple lemonade punch makes you think of warm climates and afternoons at the beach. The perfect balance of tart lemon and sweet pineapple flavor will make it hard to sip this delightful drink slowly.
