Its that weather, you can see yourself with a refreshing drink in the garden. This is what the boys did yesterday:

  • Take 4 lemons, peel them in a bowl ,( the zest not the white bits,
  • add 100g or 4 oz of fine white sugar.
  • top up with 750ml boiling water.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar is disolved.
  • leave to cool.
  • when cool, sieve out the bits of peel
  • add squeezed lemon juice
  • store in the fridge until ready to use.

PS you could add some sparkle in it by diluting with sparkling water when you serve.

sounds great, I used to make lemonade too, you can also make ginger beer the same way. I was allowed to ferment mine for three days to make it fizzy, not alchohollic, as my mother always had the yeast and what not.
