This weekend, I’m working on the design for a boy’s baby shower, and we are going to serve fresh lemonade for guests. I wanted to share this recipe with you as it’s perfect for a spring or summer party!
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Peel of 1 lemon
Juice of 6 lemons
Sliced lemons, limes and fresh mint for garnish
In a small saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil, add peel, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let sit to bring to room temperature. Strain peel from liquid. In a 2 quart pitcher, add lemon juice, 1/2 of sugar water, 5 cups of water – and taste. Add in rest of sugar water to taste. Serve with fresh lemon and lime slices topped with a mint garnish!
tips:Place lemons in microwave for 5 to 10 seconds to easily squeeze juice. Double recipe for larger parties (this lemonade will go fast!)
