Summer and lemonade go hand in hand, right? My kids love lemonade. My daughter has started cooking, and lemonade is one of her favorite things to make. She will make it by the pitcher, but sometimes she is in the mood for lemonade when we only have one or two lemons left in the refrigerator. This past week, I taught her how to make Single Serving Lemonade. She was super excited to learn that she didn’t need an entire bag of lemons to enjoy her favorite beverage on a warm summer day.
Making this lemonade for one is quick and easy, and I only need a few ingredients.
- Juice from (1) lemon – Follow this trick to easily juice the lemon: Roll the lemon on the counter top a few times. Cut the lemon in half. Firmly squeeze each lemon half into a small bowl to use for the recipe.
- 1/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup cold water
- (1) tablespoon organic cane sugar
- Ice cubes
Heat the 1/4 cup water by the method of your choice, stovetop or microwave. The water does not need to be boiling, but it does need to be hot.
Stir the sugar into the hot water. Stir until it dissolves.
Pour the sugar and water into a tall glass.
Add the 3/4 cup cold water into the glass.
Stir the mixture together.
Add ice to fill to the top of the glass.
Include a fun straw and a lemon slice on the top.
I’m in the mood for a glass of lemonade right now! This summer heat and humidity is terrible here in the south. Lemonade was made for this kind of weather, right?
