The sun certainly has put its brightest, shiniest hat on for us this week
So what better way to make the most than make some fresh homemade lemonade, sit on the balcony and soak up the rays?
If only I had a wonky lettered sign calling ‘lemonade for sale’, I could sit on the doorstep and sell it.
Trust me, you’d buy it.
roughly 2 cups caster sugar
roughly 4 cups water
(all was to taste though, so I’m not sure of exact quantities!)
Using a lemon zester squeeze as much juice out of the lemons as possible, pouring it into the jug as you go
On a hob make a simple syrup by adding 2 cups water and the sugar and stir till the sugar’s dissolved completely
Add this syrup to the lemon juice
Stir and taste, add more lemon juice or sugar depending on if you find it too sweet/sour.
Add more water to dilute it to the desired strength
Refridgerate for 30-40 minutes
Serve over ice with a slice of lemon and drenched in the hot afternoon sun
When life gives you lemons, eh?!
