Our recent photo shoot, inspired by citric tones and (occasional) warm Summer evenings, led us to post our tried and tested favourite lemonade recipe. Serve with a few sprigs of fresh mint, and wedges of oranges and lemons. Also ideal with vodka for the Summer party by the paddling pool!
To make the lemonade, dissolve 400g of sugar in 1.6 litres of water. Add the zest of three lemons. Bring to the boil and then remove from the heat.
When the liquid is cool, remove the lemon zest and add 300ml of lemon juice. This is about 6-8 lemons, depending on size. Taste the lemonade and make sure the balance between sweet and sour is right for you.
Bottle the lemonade and keep it in the fridge. It’s best to leave it a day or two before you drink it, as it definitely gets better with a little time!
