There is nothing like a cold glass of lemonade on a warm, summer day. Since we are getting into those lazy days of summer, I thought it would be fun to make lemonade for the kids. After looking at a couple of different recipes online, this is how I made mine:
1 cup organic sugar
8 cups cold water
I juiced my eight lemons in my Jack LeLanne juicer and poured into a pitcher. I added the sugar, cold water, and ice and stirred until the sugar dissolved. This can be served in glasses (or plastic cups for the kiddos) over frozen strawberries, which act as the “ice” to keep the drink cold. They also add their fruity flavor to the lemonade. And besides, it makes for a pretty presentation!
This lemonade is not overly sweet, and I thought it was good. It passed the kids’ approval, so we will make it again!
