P52-Week 6: Drink Up!

February 10, 2012

Every year when we come here to Paradise-someone gives me Meyer Lemons. They are above lemons somewhere between ambrosia and chocolate-and there is nothing like them. Sometimes I don’t eat dinner because I drink too much lemonade–that’s what you do in Paradise. You pretend it is a carefree summer day-everyday-and you drink lemonade! Drink up!

Perfect Lemonade Recipe
Prep time: 10 minutes
1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup Meyer lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.

*Next weeks theme is True Love–and I am traveling to see my new Grandson and taking one million-trillion photos and I know it will be True Love!
