Not freshly squeezed, but nearly as good!
Monday, August 16, 2010

Desperate for something sweet to drink one day, I remembered I saw my friend Sara in Austin make lemonade from bottled lemon juice.

Perhaps not a new idea for some of you, this was revolutionary to me, as I had only previously made lemonade from powdered mix.  Or...err...a pouch of "lemonade flavored" kool-aid.  I'm not proud.

Much easier than squeezing your own lemons....much tastier than the powdered stuff.  Give it a try on a hot day! 

Here's how:

Put one cup of sugar, and 3/4 cup of bottled lemon juice in your pitcher.
Pour in one cup of boiling water.
Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add 4-5 cups of cold water to dilute.  
Serve cold over ice.

Feeling ambitious?  Fancy it up by throwing in some lemon slices!

Sounds yummy! Yep, I'm a powdered mix kind of gal, too. My kids will think this is all kinds of fun - can't wait to try it!

Awwwww!!!! I got a shout out and I was a called a friend. How nice! I like your method better than mine. I'm guessing everything mixes together better with the boiling water.
