Well today as part of the children’s learning we did our usual chores followed by bookwork and cooking. However we decided to try our hand at making some homemade lemonade as a treat. This proved to be a great success and we enjoyed the experience immensely.
Here is the recipe
1 cup of caster sugar,
1 cup of lemon juice – freshly squeezed
3 cups of mineral water (you can use soda water if you choose as an alternative)
Place the caster sugar and water into a saucepan.
Stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves into the water.
Allow to cool slightly then stir in the cup of lemon juice and leave to cool completely.
Makes: 1.25 litres of Homemade Lemonade.
Once the sugar, water and lemon juice syrup is completely cooled place into a jug or drink bottle, add 3 cups of mineral water, and chill in refrigerator.
Once chilled serve in glasses garnished with ice cubes and strawberries if desired!
Note: The children found this drink to be a lot of fun to create and they enjoyed garnishing it also. However we found that the lemon flavour was quite strong, so feel free if you try this recipe to either decrease the amount of lemon juice you put in, or increase the amount of mineral water you use.
