It has been very hot couple of weeks full of events… end of school, birthday parties, friends and family visiting, going to the Brighton beach. I haven’t been cooking much lately but I will be posting shortly some yummy cookies we have made for teachers and bead box birthday cake I made for my daughter’s 9th birthday. In meantime enjoy this quick & easy homemade lemonade I’ve made with my girls.
- lots of ice cubes
- 3 lemons (juiced)
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 1 cup of golden caster sugar
- 300 – 400 g of strawberries (hulled and quartered)
- handful / about 10 of fresh mint leaves (chopped)
- cold water
- 2 l jug
- lemon juicer
- On the bottom of the jug stir lemon and lime juice with sugar and mint leaves until all sugar is dissolved.
- Add ice cubes, strawberries and enough cold water to fill the jug.
Makes 8 cups.
Lemonade taste even better after couple of hours in the fridge.
Just add more ice if the lemonade is too strong or too sweet.

Ooh this drink sounds just perfect for the hot weather we’re having, zingy and refreshing and then with the sweet strawberries – lush:-) Thank you for linking my drink too:-)
That looks so refreshing, wish I had a big jug right now. So hot!
Oh that looks so refreshing. I could neck half a jug right now ;-)
Oh Margot that looks so refreshing! Perfect for the humid summer we are having… :)
That looks refreshing and delicious. I immediately scrolled down to the directions and was delighted to see how simple it is! No boiling or faffing – this is definitely the lemonade for me!
