DIY Fresh Lemonade
There is only one beverage I love more than water...lemonade. Preferably, watered down a bit, but that is a personal choice.
This obsession becomes even more real when I am pregnant. Then, it is really on. However, growing a human or not, I love that pale canary colored beverage.
I want it all day and night. I want it in a freeze version or straight up over ice. I don't care how it comes, I just want it.
Needless to say, when I get my hands on some garden grown citrus from our trees or the groves of our neighbors...I head straight to my juicer and get working. There is nothing I love more than drinking from garden to glass!
It is rather embarrassing at how easy it is to make on your own which is why I always get annoyed with myself when I end up buying it from the store. I mean, there is really nothing to it. It is basically 1-1-1 ratio which you can play with depending on how you like it. Sweeter (more sugar), tart (more lemon juice), weak (more water)...you get the idea.
|Juice, it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.|
With the lemonade done, you can add any of your favorite muddled fruit...you know, smash it.
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries...heck throw in some lavender! The drink is your oyster so make it whatever you dream it to be...I dare say if the kids are asleep you can add a dash of vodka (gasp!).
So easy, so delicious, so perfect for the sweet heat of the warm seasons....bring it on Spring!
