OUCH!!! Just one hour sitting outside watching the kiddos in their little pool and I am a lobster!!! I didn't even show my face cause I look like a raccoon. Good grief!! I have had to wear a bathing suit top for the past 3 days as I CANNOT have ANYTHING touching those shoulders.
When this kind of weather hits, it's time to keep this perfect lemonade in the fridge. I've tried a few recipes, and this one has become my favorite. Not only is it delicious (just the right amount of sweet and tart), but it's easy!! All you have to remember is 1 - 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup of lemon juice. How easy is that?
Simply pour the 1 cup of sugar in the 1 cup of water and heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Then mix that with the 1 cup of lemon juice (you can use all fresh squeezed , lemon juice from the store, or my method - a combo of both). Now, 1+1+1=3 right? Add 3 more cups of cold water and stir it all up. PERFECT!!
If you have a bigger family (as I do), just double the recipe, still easy 2+2+2=6!!
Grab a glass with some ice and enjoy. Oh, and don't forget the SUNSCREEN!!!!
