Sweet-Tart Homemade Lemonade (made entirely by the kids)

21 Aug

My son and niece (8 and 11 respectively) had made some sugar syrup* for me last week – they are pretty good with the stove these days and eager to see how things are done.

I actually used most of it for adult beverages (mango-chile mojitos and passionfruit mojitos), but in return for their help, I promised I would show them how to make lemonade. In fact, while they were squeezing the lemons, I was taking a shower, then we just measured and mixed and that was it.

It was extremely tasty and refreshing and very easy (especially for me, because they did all the work) and looked so pretty in a special bottle! We’ll be doing it again very, very soon!

So easy, why would you buy?

    That sounds like a brilliant foodie partnership and great for you as they become more accomplished 😉

      Indeed! We need to go on an Egg-spedition today, as I think the berry surplus needs to go into some mini-muffins this evening. Who better to do i than the same kids who are going to eat them?

        That sounds like fun – I used to love foraging as a child and still do. Especially for blackberries when I was about 10 🙂

Talk foodie to me, baby...
