When we arrived in Ormond last night we discovered that Spring has indeed arrived, heat & humidity along with it! Since I happened to have a ton of lemons on hand, I thought a nice glass of lemonade would be nice to sip on the patio. This recipe is from The Modern Family Cookbook by Meta Given, copyright 1958.
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar, or to taste
About 4 cups ice water
Remove seeds from lemon juice but do not strain. Add sugar and water and stir quickly until sugar dissolves. Serve immediately, as the flavor deteriorates on standing. Amount of water and sugar both may be varied to suit personal tastes. 5 Servings. 2 WW POINTS
While 2 POINTS is not a big deal, I easily cut it down to Zero by eliminating the sugar and using 2 packets of Splenda per glass instead. How's that for an easy redux?
Hmmm...now that it's cocktail hour, how about adding a bit of tequila & a splash of cranberry juice to the lemonade, making it a Mexican Breeze? Oooh, yeah! What a refreshing 2 POINT adult beverage! Mmmmm....
Have a Lovely, Lemony Day!
