The Witticism About Making the Best of a Situation

Also known as making some lemonade!Appealing- by Laura E Horning

Problem: I really like organic lemonade. Organic lemonade is way too expensive sometimes. Santa Cruz got me addicted when their bottles were 99 cents, now they are $3.99. Grr.

Solution: Make my own darn organic lemonade.

3/4 c of Santa Cruz Organic Lemon Juice
3/4 to 1 c of Domino Organic Sugar
1 c of Filtered Water
Additional water to taste

- Add the lemon juice directly to the pitcher
- In a small sauce pan add 1c water and the sugar
- On low heat, stir until the sugar is dissolved. This will create a simple syrup
(Psst... simple syrup is the secret to good lemonade. It keeps the sugar evenly distributed and prevents nasty settling at the bottom of the pitcher.)
- Add the simple syrup to your pitcher
- Add at least a quart of filtered water and stir
- Add more water to taste
(I like a pretty watered down and slightly bitter lemonade so I tend to use less sugar and more water.)
