Since it’s summer right now, I’ve had a LOT of time to blog. Today I decided to share one of my favorite recipes of lemonade. Lemonade is a big tradition in Summer. You remember those stories, movies, and TV shows showing kids having lemonade sales? Well, you could do your own! The stand is basically a table, with a sign stuck on it. Remember to do it in shade! You can put an umbrella over the table!
Oh, and since it’s also summer, a great book that I recommend to read if you’re in the plane, car or any other place traveling, or if you’re waiting for your costumers, or if you’re at the beach/pool or even just at home. It’s called ‘The Lemonade War’ by Jacqueline Davies.
Evan Treski is people smart. He is good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math smart but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. When their lemonade war begins, there really is no telling who will win or if their fight will ever end. Here is a clever blend of humor, math fun, and savvy marketing tips (on how to make money at just about any business). It captures the one of a kind bond between brother and sister, this novel explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone‟s intent.
How to make Tasty Fresh Lemonade
Now, I’m pretty sure we ALL know how to make lemonade. Water, Sugar, Lemons. Right? Well, this is how you can spice it up..
♥ Ingredients ♥
- 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
- 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
♥ How to do it! ♥
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely. Now you have sugar water. 🙂
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice. If you want you can also use per-squeezed lemons, but they contain a lot of chemicals.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired amount. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
And, if you would like, you can serve it with some fresh lemons on the side! 🙂
There you go! A yummy drink, with an amazing book! Enjoy!
