Let’s Make Lemonade
When life gives you lemons – or a whole lot of hot weather – it’s lemonade time!
Skip the can of frozen syrup. It’s more fun to make your own. Let the kids have a lemonade stand and help you make this liquid gold in the kitchen. You’ll all enjoy the sweet-tart burst of summer.
1 cup white sugar
6 cups cold water
Lemon and lime slices, mint for garnish
- 3. Pour the juice and sugar-syrup into a large picture, stirring thoroughly. Add the rest of the cold water and chill until ready to serve.
- *Note: This is just the starting point.
Another fun thing about homemade lemonade is how much you can improvise.
Plop in some raspberries, blueberries or strawberries.
Add a little mint.
Replace one of the lemons with a couple of limes. Add a touch of honey or some fresh orange juice. For an adults-only version, add citrus flavoured vodka.
Encourage the kids to set up their stand. It’s a classic opportunity for them to learn about money and sales and life.
