When life hands you lemons…

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 

THIS

    So, the trick is to add warm water to dissolve the sugar and THEN chill. Duh.

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