Lemonade – serves 4

on June 17, 2012

Today I wanted to do something with all the lemons I have left in my fridge after using the zest for other things. So I looked online for a recipe for lemonade.

As I didn’t find anything suitable – it was only a quick search – I decided to make my own, as follows

For 1 litre of lemonade:

3 lemons

1/3 cup of sugar (about 35 g)

1.5 cups of boiling water (about 375 ml)

ice cubes and tap water.

1. Put your lemons in a bowl full of warm tap water for a few minutes to soften them – you’ll get more juice that way.

2. Pour your sugar into a large measuring jug

3. Add the boiling or nearly-boiling water and mix well

4. Juice the lemons and add juice (and pulp if you like) to the jug.

5*. Mix again, check sugar is all dissolved, then add about a dozen ice-cubes.

6. Make up to 1 litre with tap water. Refrigerate. Serves 4.

*You can skip step five if you’re not planning on using the lemonade immediately. I wanted it straight away, and not warm!

This makes quite a tart lemonade, so you may have to adjust the amount of sugar. Also, it’s flat, not fizzy. I’m told you can make lemonade fizzy by adding baking soda (bicarb) – see here for an idea of how much – but of course that’ll affect the taste. I didn’t fancy it myself, but if you try it do let me know how it comes out.

(Photos later. Like when I make it again. This batch disappeared too fast to take any!)
