Homemade Lemonade 

When God gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, unless God gives you sugar and water then that lemonade is gonna taste like shit.

Zach Galifianakis

We’re at peak summer holidays now. If you’re running short on what to do with the kids then this is quick and easy way to pass the time. As I’ve said here before, with three little kids of different ages, it’s not long before you are clutching at straws picking what to do next. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Netflix but if I have to watch another episode of Paw Patrol or Mako Mermaids when the weather turns, I think I’ll crack up. 

The Ingredients:

5 lemons 

400g caster sugar 

1.3 litres of water 

Fresh rosemary and thyme (couple of sprigs)

Lemon slices for garnish

The Make:

Juice the lemons. Add the lemon juice, caster sugar and fresh herbs to a pot and gently heat. Allow this to cool. Strain the juice and add it to the water and chill in the fridge over night. If the kids can’t wait then serve it over ice and enjoy.
