This is one of our favourite summer time drinks and since today the weather has improved, it’s time to make this refreshing drink after a hard day’s work in the garden.
170g (6oz) white sugar
1 pint of warm water
2 pints of cold water (later)
Cut the lemons in half and juice.
Add the juice to the jug of sugar and place the juicer on top of the jug. Pour the 1 pint of warm water through the juicer to get more flavour.
Stir the jug thoroughly to dissolve as much sugar as possible. Place the jug in the fridge for 2 hours. Remove and add 2 pints of cold water. Stir again to dissolve any sugar crystals left.
Update: After drinking a little of this, we found it a little sharp as the lemons pictured, were very juicy. So we added another 2 oz (60g) of sugar. It all depends on your taste, so if you’re unsure, start with the amount of sugar specified and add more if needed.
