Home-made lemonade

lemonade

With the summer in full swing and the need for a few non-alcoholic long drinks (as well as some nice home-made mixers!) we’ve been working on a few easy things to whip up and keep in the fridge. First up, a pretty simple lemonade.

Makes 1 litre.

Measures & Instructions:

  • slightly less than 1/2 litre sugar syrup
  • slightly more than 1/2 litre lemon juice*

*squeeze it yourself if you insist, but if you can get your hands on the FRESH sqeezed stuff in the chiller cabinet at your local supermarket it’s just as good, cheaper, and less trouble.

Mix both together, bottle & chill.

Dilute with soda for drinking – it’s a bit strong by itself.
Add a shot of gin or vodka if you feel like something a little stronger!
Or use in our watermelon-ade (up soon) or iced tea rum punch, amongst other things.
