Yummy Summer Drinks Series - Lemony Deliciousness


Homemade Lemonade 

Simple Syrup
10-12 lemons - juiced. Should yield about 2 1/2 cups lemon juice

Make your simple syrup and cool. Add lemon juice through strainer. Taste it. If you like it this sweet, cool and chug away. If it's too sweet for you (like it is for me), then add water to taste.

Minty Lemonade Slush 
you will notice that this recipe is very similar to the one you will find on Fuzz Food
That's because it's where I got it...it's kind of like a slushy mint julep.

Fresh Mint Leaves

Fill your blender about 3/4 full with ice
Add lemonade to ice level.
Add 3 fresh mint leaves.
Blend it until ice cubes are completely crushed.
Garnish with mint leaves, serve, and enjoy! Perfect for a sunny day.


Pomegranate Lemonade

32 oz. pure pomegranate juice. 
Chill and serve. Delicious. 
Again, you can add water to dilute to taste.

Coming Thursday: Presentation (serving, garnishes, frosting glasses)
