Obviously, you make Lemonade. In keeping with my new "if it's cheap, buy it" attitude, I recently purchased about 12 lemons that I had no use or plan for. And, even though lemonade really is quite simple, I am particularly proud of the lemonade I have been making as of late. In fact, I can be found sitting on my couch when its 90º outside sipping lemonade and mentioning (ever so humbly) how perfectly delicious it is.
So I'm sharing the incredibly simple recipe.
The key is to remember that it's simply equal parts water, sugar, and fresh lemon juice.
A good amount is 1 cup. Make a simple syrup with the water and sugar and then mix it with one cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, putting the entire mixture in the fridge until it cools. then add water to it until it reaches your desired strength. (My current method is putting the ingredients in an old juice bottle to cool and then filling it up with water. This just happens to be the perfect amount.) Ta da! That easy.
I am a learn-o-phile with a penchant for all things domestic. I love, first and foremost the muppets and then, among other things (and not in any particular order), classic horror movies, fresh basil, citrus fruits, garlic, lace, staying up later than most sane people would consider, dancing in my kitchen to the sounds of billie and ella, dancing in empty old man bars to sam cooke, high heels (although the chance to wear the many pairs I own comes only in a blue moon), string quartets, whispering, brown sugar, ginger, aprons, the green mill on a lazy sunday night, spinach, drawing, swings, lyonel feininger, souffles, red lighting, indonesian culinary delights, used book stores, making things from scratch, classic cartoons, growing herbs, thrift stores, farmers markets, lemongrass, biking on a sunny 70-degree day, thunderstorms, fresh mozzarella, feeling like a kid, and finding ways to cook healthy delicious meals that both I and my live-in boyfriend can enjoy despite our conflicting tastes. (without excluding the occasional way too indulgent dessert)
