If we’re ever caught with lemonade concentrate in our shopping carts, many villages are missing several idiots. We’re talking equal parts water + sugar + lemon juice to make a concentrate + four times the water = the best lemonade you’ve ever tasted. The secret is to heat the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves, combine it with the lemon juice and then add the H2O. Feel free to use lime juice – which would be perfect with a Mexican spread or taco night – and don’t forget the tequila!
What shrieks suuuuummmeeeeeer louder than a glorious batch of lemonade? Whether you’re the proprietor of a stand on the corner, or you’re a full grown adult, lemonade is the quintessential summer refresher. So make yourself a batch, serve as is, or make that your lip-smackin’ beginning – add a few supporting players like vodka, gin, tequila, champagne or ginger beer – and don’t forget the soda water, to add a little fizz, and you’ll be set straight through ’til Labour Day. And if that’s not enough, lemons could not be a healthier thing to be swillin’ back like it’s the Wild Wild West!
