Country Lemonade

(2 Votes)

One sip of this fresh-squeezed lemonade and you'll know exactly why it's a top choice with everything from zippy barbecue to the most delicate finger foods.

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (see Notes)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
What To Do:
  1. In a pitcher, combine the sugar and hot water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
     
  2. Add cold water, lemon juice, and lemon slices; mix well.
     
  3. Serve, or chill until ready to serve.

Makes about 1-1/2 quarts.
 

Notes

Depending on the size, 4 to 5 lemons should produce about 1/2 cup fresh juice. When you're ready to serve this, bring out a big glass pitcher and serve it over ice, garnished with additional lemon slices and some fresh mint leaves.

Banana Chocolate Swirl Cake

There's a popular new (well, maybe not so new) ingredient that so versatile and good for you, we just had to share it! It's coconut oil, and it can be used to make everything from popcorn to scrambled eggs, from sauteed chicken to baked goods. We used it to make our Banana Chocolate Swirl Cake and is it ever moist and delicious!
