Make Homemade Lemonade

Item number four on my Summer 2013 Bucket List is “Make Homemade Lemonade.” I bought a bundle of 6 or 7 lemons from Trader Joe’s for $1.99. Then I got home and realized I didn’t have a juicer of any kind. I improvised with elbow grease and a whisk, then strained through a mesh strainer to get any pulp. I got about half a cup of juice. To that I added a cup (!) of sugar and two cups of water, then chilled for a few hours (not a fan of ice).

I’ve never made lemonade from scratch and I’m not sure I’ve ever ordered it either. I’m not a big fan of juices in general. However, this was pretty amazing. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Coming soon in my Summer 2013 Bucket List: Go to a farmer’s market, Take a road trip, Wake up to see the sunrise, Plan a picnic…
