Homemade Lemonade

When life hands you some lemons… make homemade lemonade! 🙂  That’s what they say, so that’s what we’ll do!

Spring has finally arrived in Cape Town, and the last few days have just been absolutely beautiful here!

I have a bowl full of lemons, and thought it was time to make some homemade lemonade! Nothing better on a hot day than an ice cold homemade lemonade to keep in the fridge.

This is quick to make but takes a bit of time to cool down.

A little tip for squeezing out the lemons.  Before cutting them, roll them between the palms of your hands so that they soften a bit, this makes squeezing so much easier!

What you need:
1 cup Freshly squeezed Lemon juice {about 5 lemons}
1 cup Water
1 cup Sugar

Heat the water and sugar on the stove top at a medium temperature and stir until the sugar has dissolved, to form the syrup.

Allow this syrup to cool completely.

Then add the freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Voila, that is you lemonade syrup.

For serving mix with water {about one to 5 or to taste}, ice and a few mint leaves and chunks of lemon.

It’s a great drink for a party to serve in bottles with beautiful straws in, or as a non-alcoholic cocktail at a baby shower.
