Summer is definitely the time for refreshing homemade drinks. Especially lemonade! Remember I said a lemonade recipe was coming soon in my 10 Things to Do This Summer post? Well here it is! This recipe is one my family have been using for years. It is personally my favourite because you really infuse all of the lemon, not just using the juice, so it’s more vibrant and delicious! Enjoy!
YOU WILL NEED:
900ml boiling water (or just round it up to a litre for ease)
1. Peel the rind of the lemon and the sugar into a heatproof jug.
2. Pour on the boiling water, cover with either cling film or a plate. Leave to cool, stirring occasionally.
3. When cool, juice the lemons and add this to the jug. Strain the lemonade then add ice cubes and mint, ya know for the Instagram snaps obviously.
Other variations: You can add lavender, rose water, more mint or add lime juice as well. Just have fun with it!
This recipe does take longer than the usual recipe but the end results are so worth it! Do you love lemonade? What is your favourite summer drink?
Lots of Love,
