When life throws you lemons….

Make some limonade!  That’s right; I said limonade; no misspellings or typos there. I am talking about a perfectly tart and sweet treat that will quench any summertime thirst.  The lime makes it a little different from the traditional plain lemonade but it is refreshing and lip smacking good.  Now go try this recipe before the temperature get above 200 degrees!

Summertime Limonade
Servings: 6
1 cup sugar
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
½  cup lemon juice (about 2-3 lemons)
½ cup lime juice (about 2-3 limes)
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)

1.       To make simple syrup, simmer sugar and water in a small pot until sugar is completely dissolved. Then chill in refrigerator.
2.       In the meantime, use a juicer to extract the lemon and lime juice from the lemons and limes, just enough for ½ cup each.
3.       Add the lemon and lime juice, simple syrup and cold water into a large pitcher. Refrigerate for 30-40 minutes and then adjust the sweetness by adding additional sugar or tartness by adding additional lemon and lime juice as needed.
4.       Serve with ice, lemon and lime slices.
