I have this weird little obsession with lemonade at the moment, but not fizzy, comercial stuff, the real sort that kids sell on the street in America.
All you need is 3 lemons, 1.2 ltrs of boiling water, 250g of sugar.
cut the 3 lemons in to small cubes (make sure they are unpeeled!)
put cut lemons and sugar in to a heat proof bowl, put the 1.2 ltrs od BOILING water on top.
leave for 15 minutes
taste. if too bitter add sugar, if too sweet, leave for longer.
put in fridge until cool, add ice cubes and a slice of lemon when serving (some like it with mint leaves.)
This is the batch I just finished.
