Deliciously Refreshing Homemade Lemonade

August 10, 2018

Homemade Lemonade

On a hot summer day, there is nothing better to quench a thirst than ice-cool homemade lemonade. Made with fresh lemons and a twist of lime, this refreshing drink is a firm favourite!

What You'll Need

    Homemade Lemonade
    • 280g of sugar
    • 120ml of boiling water
    • 2 teaspoons of grated lemon rind
    • 355ml of fresh lemon juice
    • Half a lime
    • 1.2 litres of cold water
    • Lemon slice to garnish

    You can also use this as a mixture for cocktails, add it to gin or vodka for added punch!  You can also vary the amount of sugar if it's too sweet/bitter.  This lemonade recipe is also great for pouring in to lolly moulds for frozen refreshment!

    Here's what to do

    1. In a heat-proof bowl, mix the sugar and boiling water until the sugar has dissolved
    2. Stir in the lemon juice, the rind and the cold water
    3. Pour in to a jug and chill (out of fridge until room temperature and then in fridge).
    4. Service over ice and with a twist of lime (to taste).  Garnish with a lemon slice. 

    Top tip:  if you want to be able to vary the strength of the lemonade, follow the method above but don't add the cold water.  Without that, you are left with a syrup which is a concentrate of the lemonade, so you can add to a glass of cold water a bit at a time to control the strength of the drink.
