Updated: May 23, 2021
So, we are in the dog days of summer, a summer like no other, with many kids still under a quarantine at home and all creative ideas exhausted! Why not make some delicious fresh lemonade from scratch! It is so easy to do with lemons from Florida - the juiciest in the world!
Here is my own recipe for lemonade that is a bit strong, but I pour it over a glass of ice and it is perfect!
Martha’s Fresh Florida Lemonade
1 cup organic sugar crystals
Juice of 6 Florida lemons (1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice)
1 whole Florida lemon, sliced
4 cups water with ice
Juice lemons and measure. Pour 1 cup juice into pitcher, add 1 cup sugar and stir with wooden spoon to dissolve.
Fill 2 cup measuring cup with ice, then top off with water to make 2 cups. Pour into juice mixture.
Add second 2 cups of water and stir well. Add sliced lemons. Serve over ice or straight up. Add one slice of fruit to each glass as garnish.
