This is how my mum used to make lemonade for me as a kid. She'd freeze it in a drinks container so that I'd go off to school with a block of ice that, by lunchtime, had defrosted into a tinglingly (yes, it IS a word) cold, deliciously lemony drinky thing. If you can't find unwaxed lemons, scrub waxed ones well under hot water.
- 2 lemons, grated and juiced
- 2 lemons, chopped roughly
- 500ml boiling water
- 4 tbsp sugar or to taste
Put the grated zest and juice of two of the lemons in a bowl and pour over the boiling water. Leave this mixture to stand until quite cooled, then strain into a liquidiser with the chopped lemons, the sugar and another 500ml of water. Liquidise it well, let it stand for a short while to settle and then strain into containers. Serve frozen to small children or cooled in tall glasses to adults.
