For Valentines Day this year I got given a book on hosting vintage tea parties (calm down Mum the book was from one of my housemates… not a boy) and one of the recipes inside is for traditional lemonade. While lemonade is mainly seen as a summer drink [Charlie and I are contemplating opening up a lemonade stand on Pennsylvania Rd in the hotter months, so watch this space] I think it can be equally as refreshing and delicious at any time of the year.
I tweaked the recipe from the book slightly as I decided to add golden syrup as well as sugar.
- Juice of 7 lemons
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 150 gr sugar (100 caster, 50 brown)
- 1tbsp golden syrup
- 2 cups water
