Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Blitz the lemons in a food processor or blender with half of the sugar, some ice cubes and 500ml/18fl oz water. Strain the juice into a jug and reserve.

  • STEP 2

    Tip the lemon pulp back into the food processor. Add the rest of the sugar, more ice cubes and 500ml/18fl oz water and blitz again. Strain this into the jug with the reserved juice (discard the pulp). Serve with lots of ice.

RECIPE TIPS
GIVE IT A TWIST

For a sweeter taste use oranges instead of lemons, or add some lime juice for extra zing.

TO TAKE TO THE PICNIC

Pour the lemonade in a flask or drink bottle.
