Even if life isn't giving you lemons, making lemonade is always a great idea on those hot summer days! As part of my summer bucket list, I wanted to try making lemonade from scratch. The recipe itself is quite simple, but I've never had to hand juice fruit before, so it was quite the experience (and workout for my wrist)!
1 3/4 c. Sugar
1 1/2 c. Lemon Juice
8 c. Water
Dissolve sugar in 1 cup of hot or boiling water (I microwaved my water). Stir. Add lemon juice and remaining water into a large pitcher. Stir. Serve over ice and enjoy!
I don't mean to brag, but this was the best lemonade I've ever had! Maybe it's because it was more satisfying having made it myself, but it could also just be the fact that homemade, fresh things are always the best! Let me know if you give this recipe a try!
What's your favourite summer drink to sip on?
