Freshly squeezed, fizzy homemade lemonade

Freshly squeezed, fizzy homemade lemonade

There’s nothing more perfect than sitting in the back garden, on a warm Spring or Summer day relaxing on a sun lounger and sipping a glass of delicious freshly squeezed homemade lemonade.

This recipe makes approximately 1.5 litres of refreshingly tart lemonade and it’s really easy and quick to make.

Next time the sun is out, get some lemons and sparkling water in because you must make this lemonade.

Do you remember the loom band craze? That summer my kids did nothing but weave loom bands. It was brilliant! My children eschewed the screen in favour of counting little brightly coloured elastic bands making intricate elastic creations.

That summer we had a loom band stall outside our house. My children organised the stall, produced the goods and did the marketing (accosting passers-by with cute toothless smiles). I think they made the grand sum of £8. A fortune!

What’s this got to do with freshly squeezed, fizzy homemade lemonade?

Because this summer the children want to have a homemade lemonade stall. If you are in Tooting during the summer holidays, look out for us selling our freshly squeezed, fizzy homemade lemonade.
