Lemonade recipe for one or more
Water may be best but I do enjoy a nice tall lemonade on a sunny day. Heck, I enjoy a glass of lemonade on cold, cloudy days. There is something about this beverage that just reminds of a summer. But when you live in a 31-foot motorhome with a refrigerator about twice as big as an ice chest, a pitcher of lemonade just aren’t practical. My solution is single servings of this tart refreshing summertime beverage.
For one serving of lemonade I put two Tablespoons of sugar and eight Tablespoons of water in a glass. Stir until completely dissolved then add two or three Tablespoons of lemon juice. Add ice and sip away.
For four serving of lemonade I’ll put eight Tablespoons of sugar (1/2 cup) and 48 Tablespoons (3 cups) of water in a large pitcher. Stir until completely dissolved then add 16 Tablespoons (1 cup) of lemon juice. Fill glasses with ice and pour the lemonade into glass.
For a special lemonade, and if I have the time to allow to cool, I will mix the sugar and water in a sugar over a flame. To this mixture, I’ll add the stripes of a lemon’s yellow peel and bring the sugar solution to come to a boil. As soon as it starts to bubble, I’ll try off the heat and let cool to room temperature. To serve, I’ll remove the lemon peel from the sugar solution and use this solution as if it was the sugar and water solution in the above recipe.
