Lemonade

Lemonade is the taste of summer. This sweet and sour refreshing drink is not just for kids. We have a Meyer Lemon bush in our yard, it surpluses me the lemons for most of the year, but it might run out this year if I keep making lemonade. 

I had the best  lemonade on my very first trip to San Francisco. We were sitting at a restaurant in Sausalito on a terraces over the water, a sunny January day, overlooking San Francisco - it was perfection. I spend this afternoon on my terrace reading and sipping lemonade.  

Here is my version of the perfect summer drink.

1 pitcher full 

Ingredients:

Simple syrup:

  • ½ cup (1 dl) water
  • ½ cup (1 dl) sugar

Lemonade:

  • 3-5 lemons, the juice of (I used Meyer lemons)
  • 3-4 cups water for diluting
  • ice cubes

Direction:

Make the simple syrup first, by heating the water and sugar, while stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. Let the syrup cool down.

Juice the lemons. Pour lemon juice into a pitcher with water some simple syrup and ice cubes. Add more water and syrup to the lemonade to your taste

Enjoy.
