Superbowl Lemonade

February 3, 2013

Earlier in the week we thought Carla might be coming down with the flu; she’s been dealing with a lot of sick kids at Whitford. Looking ahead to her recuperation I bought about 1/2 dozen beautiful lemons at Uwajimaya, our local Asian super store. Well thank goodness she only had a little cold. Now I was faced with a bunch of lemons; what to do, what to do. We were having some friends over to watch the Superbowl and figured lemonade might be in order. Mission accepted. I’ve used this nice recipe from Simply Recipes before to great sucess. It’s very simple: to make lemonade for 1 cup lemon juice make a simple syrup of 1 cup each sugar and water. My recipe is here

Simple ingredients; tasty results

1 1/2 cup sugar & 1 1/2 cup water.

Luscious lemons

The secret of this lemonade is steeping lemon peel in the syrup for a few minutes. Make sure you don’t include any pith (the bitter white stuff between he peel and the fruit)

Nice juicy lemons; we got 1 1/2 cups juice from them.

Mix the lemon juice and simple syrup then add 3+ cups of cold water until it tastest just right

We made some bubbly mixed drinks by mixing this with some San Pellegrino. If I knew we were going to do that, I wouldn’t have diluted the juice as much.
