I absolutely love a glass of cool, refreshing homemade traditional lemonade on a hot day. This is a really easy, no cook and make ahead traditional lemonade recipe which should keep you supplied with deliciousness on those hot summer days.
This recipe only has three simple ingredients, lemons, sugar and water. No added nasties that you might find in shop bought lemonade. Lemon juice is full of vitamin C so, although this drink will give you a bit of a sugar hit, it does have some goodness in there too! There are no artificial colours or preservatives so it's great recipe if you are looking to consume more natural foods.
Nothing beats this traditional homemade lemonade recipe. This favourite recipe of mine is courtesy of Delia Smith. It's so easy to do and totally delicious. You just need to be prepared and start making it the evening before ideally. This works out well for me, I don't need to spend a hot day in the kitchen cooking up lemonade, it's really easy to make a batch in the evening when I'm boiling the kettle for my evening drink and whip up a batch of this to keep overnight in the fridge until the morning. It's perfect for a summer's day or any day in my opinion! The children absolutely love it - and it's great to serve to friends in the garden over some ice and a slice of lemon.
Homemade Traditional Lemonade
- 150 g caster sugar
- 6 lemons
- 2.5 pints boiling water
150g caster sugar
Peel the rind of the lemons with a potato peeler, taking care not to get too much of the white pith. Place this in a jug with 2.5 pints of boiling water, the sugar, and the juice of the lemons. Cover and leave to soak for as long as possible or overnight in a cool place.
Strain and serve. Yum Yum!
