Yesterday I randomly decided that I would make some pink lemonade. We were doing our weekly shop anyway so I just had to add a few extra items into the trolley. This is super easy to make and it is strangely satisfying to have made your own lemonade.
You will need:
300g Caster Sugar
2 lemons (1 and a half for the lemonade, half for decoration)
350ml cold water
Soda/sparkling/still water – personal preference
Slice up your oranges and lemons, you can leave the skin on as you will be sieving the juice out.
Put the sugar, sliced lemons, sliced orange and raspberries into a saucepan, pour the 350ml of cold water over them.
Bring to the boil, stirring often.
Pour through a sieve, pressing down to extract all of the juices.
Pour into a jug and add your soda/sparkling/still water when cooled (try not to make as much of a mess as I did!). As mentioned in the ingredients this water is personal preference and depends on how strong/fizzy you want your lemonade. I added a whole bottle of soda water to mine.
Add ice cubes and the remaining half a lemon (sliced).
Serve and enjoy 🙂 This can be kept in the fridge for a week.
By the way, how cool are my new tumblers*? Ozeri have started selling a limited line of their products on Amazon, when I was asked to pick an item to feature on my blog I could not resist these double wall tumblers. Not only does the double wall look pretty cool but it also serves a purpose, it will keep your hands cool with hot drinks and free of condensation with chilled drinks.
I posted a photo of them on Instagram and facebook and I had a lot of people asking about them, they really are a great talking point. The tumblers are handmade with a shatter resistant borosilicate glass which is stronger and more durable than normal glass. They come with a one year warranty and are dishwasher safe which is always a bonus, I hate washing things by hand!
These glasses will definitely be coming out when we have people over, probably for shorts. If I had a fancy coffee machine I would be using these for coffee too, I don’t think a cup of instant Nescafe will have quite the same affect!
The set of tumblers are currently reduced to £24.95 and can be purchased here.
