This is a lemonade I make in the summer. However, it is not the heavy, syrupy lemonade you buy in the store. It is better for you and very light and refreshing. I take a lemon, cut it in half, squeeze the juices into a large pitcher and add sugar to taste. I like to add just enough sugar to make it sweet but still very light. The real lemon makes it so refreshing and much better for you. I make a gallon with a whole lemon but if you wanted to squeeze your pennies a bit further, you could use 1/2 a lemon.
Here I have some canned plums. Later on, when the plums are gone, I will take this leftover syrup/juice and add it to the drink for a little bit of a different taste and some savings on sugar. .
