When life hands you lemons…make LEMONADE

make lemonade

 
Fresh lemonade reminds me of 
 
 
going to the boardwalk  
 
and
 
 lemonade stands on a hot summer day
 
mmm…
 
ice cold lemonade 
 
can even make a cold winter day bright,
 
especially when you have fresh lemons.
 
I make two quarts of lemonade from three of four lemons
 
it does depend on how juicy they are,
 
these were very juicy so three is all I needed.
 
 
slice them in half
 
 
and begin juicing
 
you can use a hand held juicer,
 
 
or a press style juicer
 
or which ever you have there are so many types
 
make sure to every last drop
 
then,
in a pitcher 
 
 
add 1/3 cup sugar
 
and dissolve with
2/3 cup warm tap water

it only takes a minute to stir and it will dissolve

 
then add the lemon juice
 
 and fill with cold water 
 
stir and serve
 
I rimmed the glass with a slice of lemon and dipped it in sugar
 
filled the glass with plenty of ice and poured the lemonade in gave it a stir 
 
Any day can be a
sunshine day
with a fresh glass of
 ice cold lemonade
 
and a sun sunshine day reminded me of

    You know I was talking about myself in my comment, right? I never thought to use warm water to dissolve the sugar.
