Dish: Lemonade Concentrate
But I wanted to make him lemonade anyway because my husband bought 2 huge bags of limes and lemons and as they say when life gives you lemons (and limes), make lemonade. Which is exactly what I did 🙂
Recipe is from Varada’s Kitchen. After a very chilly start to May, the weather finally started getting warmer towards the end of the month and it was a great refreshing afternoon drink for the kids. The quantity I made was enough to make 6~8 servings. Double or triple the recipe if you want, store in the fridge and use as needed.
Recipe from Varada’s Kitchen:
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 cup Water
- 1 cup Lemon Lime juice /
- In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and water. Cook on low flame stirring until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat once the sugar dissolves. Let it cool for about 10~15 minutes.
- Stir in the freshly squeezed lemon/ lime juice and mix well to combine. Let it cool completely. Store in a clean bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
- To make the lemonade: Combine 1 part lemonade concentrate to 2 parts water and swerve chilled over ice.
