When you watch American movies you get see scenes from hot summer afternoon when kids from neighbourhood are selling lemonade. Well, I’m Polish and I could learn how to make kompot if I only wanted (but I didn’t wanted at this time), but citrus fruits were quite hard to get. So only a few years ago I started wondering, how you actually make lemonade.
I probably should follow some more classic recipe for start, but I love recipes that you can make in 5 minutes. Thanks to Nigella I actually learnt that you need 5 minutes and 3 ingredients to make refreshing lemonade.
I don’t think I will ever have a cute stand like this one, but for sure I can enjoy lemonade on my balcony.
Recipe adapted from “Nigella Express” by Nigella Lawson
- 3 unwaxed lemons, cut into wedges
- 4 Tbsp sugar
- 0.7 l sparkling water
Put all the ingredients into a blender or food processor (you may need to do it in two batches) and blitz until quite smooth.
Strain the lemonade through the sieve.
Serve with ice.
