Homemade Lemonade


It's refreshing on a hot day and packed with vitamin C!



  1. Make the syrup. Put the sugar in a heatproof bowl and add the hot water. Stir to dissolve the sugar, then set aside to cool.
  2. Roll the lemons. This helps release the juice.
  3. Squeeze the lemons. You need 8 fluid ounces (250 ml) of juice.
  4. Add sugar syrup and chilled water. Pour the juice into a pitcher and stir in the sugary syrup.

Yield: 2 pints (1.25 liters)

Try fruity ice cubes - Put blueberries and tiny sprigs of mint in the ice cube trays. Fill with water and freeze.

Try pink lemonade - Just add a few drops of grenadine.
