A cool refreshing beverage definitely is welcomed anytime of the year especially during the hot summer months. One of the easiest beverages to make is lemonade. Nothing can be easier than grabbing a bag of lemons and start using a juice squeezer.
Now that we have our lemons sqeezed and the lemon juice poured into the pitcher. What type of water will you be adding ? Are you going to add some boiled water that you let cool off ? How about some bottled water or will you be adding some mineral water ? When I make lemonade sometimes before cutting my lemons I will boil some regular tap water and let cool off. Then I will make some ice cubes for my lemonade. I will refrigerate the cooled off boiled water for my lemonade. I occasionally use Pellegrino mineral water for my liquid base in my lemonade. Sometimes I use a jug of bottled water and on a couple of occasions have been known to combine my waters for the liquid base in my lemonade.
Next comes the sweetener for the lemonade unless you want your lemonade tangy and not sweet at all. All types of sweeteners exist that can sweeten your lemonade. I use regular sugar, sugar in the raw or honey. I saw a honeycomb at the grocery store. A honeycomb is something that I would like to put in the lemonade. The visual presentation of the honeycomb and lemon slices in the lemonade would be beautiful.
In conclusion, regardless how you decide to make your lemonade chances are that it will be a delicious refreshing beverage. Lemonade can go with just about any meal or as a single cold beverage. If you want to add some variety to your leftover lemonade. Great News! Lemonade is very versatile because you can add crushed cherries and make cherry lemonade. You can also add some blue colored ice cubes you made with lemonade. Stay cool and enjoy!
