Homemade lemonade

Here's a great refreshing recipe for those hot summer days we sometimes get!  Lemonade made from fresh lemons is such a refreshing treat, and it's really easy to make. 


  • 12¬†lemons
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 2 pints of boiled water


  1. First start by scrubbing the lemons before before removing the peel with a peeler, leaving as much pith on the lemon as possible.
  2. Squeeze the lemons into a large bowl or jug, add the peel and pour in the water just after it has boiled.
  3. Tip in the sugar and stir until it has dissolved.
  4. Now seal the container and leave to cool.
  5. Once cool, pour into a glass, add sparkling water and ice to taste.
