Home made lemonade

What a summer we are having it is one of the hottest days of the year and I'm lucky enough to be sitting out in the sun writing this blog.

I received a fabulous recipe the other day from Cloughjordan House cookery school and the timing couldn't have been better. 

It was their recipe for home made lemonade, and as my house always seems to have an endless supply of lemons in it for baking I was able to try it out straight away.

For this recipe you will need:
250g of sugar
250ml of water
3 lemons
3 limes
2.5 litres of water

To begin add your sugar and 250mls of water to a pot and heat. Peel the zest of one of the lemon and lime without the pith with a sharp knife and pop that in the pot with the sugar syrup. Bring this to the boil and stir until sugar has dissolved.

Once that is ready take it off the heat and get on with juicing your lemons and limes. Next add this to the sugar syrup then strain it all into a large carafe, lastly add in the icecold 1.5 litres of water with some ice and maybe a few slices of lemon and bobs your uncle you have yourself an amazing summer drink.

Mine lasted not even a days was practically hiding the carafe by the end from my family...{as I did not have any limes in the house while making this recipe I used 4 large lemons instead}
