Let there be Lemonade

A visual guide to serving the lemonade:

Watermelon makes happy!

Tastes better outside, eh?

The anticipation is killing me.


All gone!

Now that ‘summer’ is here, what better way to relax on the porch or after a hard days gardening work than to kick back and cool off with some fresh lemonade – kicked up Jordan style!

Here the recipe our youngest gastronome developed – cool enough to quench even the hardest thirst.

Lemonade: (makes a large pitcher)
4 lemons juiced
1 lime sliced
1/2 can mandarin segments
english cucumber, very thinly sliced, about 16 slices
fresh mint or lemon balm from the garden
ice cubes
sugar or syrup to taste

Add all the ingredients to a large pitcher stir to dissolve sugar. Serve into short glasses making sure each glass gets some slices and mint. Kick back and let the cool breezes flow.
