Summer Lemonade

Posted on October 26, 2011. Filed under: Food | Tags: , , , |

Growing up in the sunny state of Georgia has given me an appreciation for refreshing chilled drinks.  On a hot day, a zesty large glass of lemonade refreshes the throat like no other drink.  Sadly, the summer days are gone and the chilly weather has blown into Northern Ireland.   In effort to say goodbye to summer, I decided to make lemonade while the sun was still shining.  Goodbye my beloved summer days!

To start, wash about 5-6 fresh lemons.

Heat 245ml (1 cup) water and 128g (1 cup) sugar in a saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Once sugar dissolves, allow the water to cool.

Extract the lemon juice with a juicer.


 Pour the lemon juice and sugar water into a large pitcher.  Then add 800ml – 950ml (3-4 cups) cold water and stir.  Taste to see if you would prefer to add more sugar or lemon juice.  Refrigerate until the lemonade is cold.  Add a slice of lemon to a tall glass of lemonade and ENJOY!!!

 Farewell summer sweetness! Hello to the spectacular spices of autumn!

Your pictures are amazing as always.

Great pictures, Lyns!! 🙂

Your pictures are so great!! Praying for you everyday. I want to try the cupcakes, but your mom said hers didn’t look near like yours!! We had a nice time with Lorie on her birthday. 🙂 Love, grma B.

Hello Grandma, thanks for your prayers! My mom didn’t use this recipe, which is a bit more firm to help the butterfly wings. Take the knife and slant it into the cupcake to cut out almost like an upsidedown triangle. Then cut them in half, fill the hole in with whipped cream, and place the wings on. Margarine would be the American substitute for Stork- not sure if we have that brand in USA?! Try this recipe out, and let me know if it works!!
