CQ Black Raspberry açaí Infused Lemonade Recipe
RECIPE YIELD: 1 POUCH RECIPE WILL FILL OUR 3.5-GALLON BEVERAGE DISPENSER TWICE
CQ Infused Beverage System
1 BPA-Free, Dishwasher Safe CQ Beverage Dispenser
1 Insert (patent pending)
1 Base (natural bamboo or brushed stainless steel)
1 Portion Control Mixing Bucket
1 CQ Slicer Key/Wand
Confirm that the spigot is screwed in tightly and then carefully lower the insert into the jar.
1 Commercial Slicer (Do not slice by hand! If you don't have a slicer, use a mandoline)
1 Metal Strainer
1 Pouch of CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Puree
6 Hard Lemons - 28 slices
3 Gallons of Fresh Lemonade (Instead of pre-made lemonade, create your own by mixing 3-gallons of filtered water with 2 Pouches of CQ Lemon Puree)
Using a slicer, cut a test slice and compare it to the thickness of the CQ slicer key (on the end of the wand). Adjust the slicer until your slices match the thickness of the slicer key. Once calibrated, slice up all ingredients as necessary.
The Art of Infused Lemonade
To set the insert in place, position a lemon slice at each corner of the jar between the insert and the jar. Use the CQ Wand to push the slices all the way down. Decorate the rest of the jar using the CQ Wand to position the remaining slices as shown in the picture.
Infusing the Lemonade
Using the CQ wand to measure the water level, fill the CQ Mixing Bucket with 3 gallons of lemonade. Add 1 pouch of CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Puree and stir.
Next, place a metal strainer in the mixing bucket and muddle any remaining lemon slices. This technique will ensure that no fruit pieces end up blocking the spigot later. Congratulations, you’ve just created CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Lemonade!
FILLING, SERVING & REFRESHING
Fill the beverage container to the top with ice cubes (about 10 lbs.) and add the CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Lemonade. To refresh, add equal amounts of ice and CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Lemonade.
Cleanup & Storage
Empty the beverage container’s ice and liquid into the sink.
Remove the insert by sliding it upwards or by reaching into the jar by the spigot cutout to get a secure grip on the edge of the insert.
Dump any fruit, herbs or vegetables into your compost bin.
Load all plastic parts onto a dishwasher tray and run through your dishwasher. Do not wash the stainless steel or bamboo bases, instead, wipe by hand with an appropriate cleaner.
Air-dry and reassemble the CQ Infused Beverage System. Store in a secure case or room.
