Its summer time, and the fruit is a plenty…..
Time to make some fresh lemonade, with tasty ripe fruit!
What you’ll need:
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice (5-6 large lemons)
1 pint fresh fruit
2 cups club soda, sparkling water or regular water – your choice
What you’ll do:
~In saucepan heat 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar (making a simple syrup), once sugar is completely dissolved add lemon juice, and take off stove top.
~Let cool completely before moving on…OK I’m inpatient and cant wait, stick it in the freezer or fridge for awhile to start the chilling process..
~In meantime, puree the pint of fruit that you’re going to be using in a blender, the puree doesn’t have to be super fine, remember fruit chunks are GOOD!!!
~Once water/sugar/lemon mixture is slightly cool, I used ice cold water, 2 cups, to finish the cooling process. Pour liquid mixture into pitcher along with fruit puree, mix well and enjoy…
~Juice lemons in a juicer (I use a Breville and its the BEST)
~Pour lemon juice, 1 cup water, and sugar in a shaker (like a martini shaker)….and shake like a salt shaker!!
~Juice all your fruit or use an immersion blender to puree
~Pour lemon juice and fruit mix into a pitcher and add the 2 cups club soda or water
~Serve over ice, garnish with fresh fruit and enjoy
Either way you make it, you’ll enjoy it..
