Why did I wait so long?



Every summer, I try to make this delicious homemade lemonade at least once or twice.

However, this is the first time I've made it this summer. Why did I wait so long to make it?

It's delicious and I think if you decide to give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

HOMEMADE LEMONADE

(Now I grant you, the name of this is Homemade Lemonade, but limes & oranges are used as well as lemons. Go figure.)

You will need 5 lemons, 5 limes & 5 oranges. Some sugar, water & a gallon pitcher.

Squeeze the juice from 4 lemons, 4 limes & 4 oranges. Add 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar along with 3 quarts of water. Mix together. Thinly slice the remaining lemon, lime & orange to use for garnish. (Or I usually just throw them in the pitcher.) Refrigerate.

I made this yesterday & need I say that the gallon container has taken a serious hit. We just can't stop drinking the stuff!

ENJOY!

I like adding basil to mine. Sounds weird, but it is oh-so-delicious! Just steep in hot water with sugar before you add your fresh lemons and lemon juice. Yum!

That sounds so good! It's really heating up here, that would go down well:)
