Perfectly refreshing for a sultry summer evening,
make up a big batch of this homemade pink lemonade in the morning & you can sip on it lazily all day long.
Start with a small saucepan & bung in 1 cup of caster sugar along with the peelings of 4 plump lemons & 1 cup of water. Bring that lot to the boil over a medium heat then simmer until the sugar is all dissolved. Remove from the heat & set aside to cool for later.
In your serving jug (make sure it’s a really big one as this makes a lot!), place 7-8 cups of water, the juice of the 4 lemons (or a wee bit more if you like it lemony), 1/2 a cup of cranberry juice (there’s the pink) & a good pinch of salt!
Remove the lemon peelings from the saucepan (they’ve done their job infusing all their luscious oil) & then add the syrup to the serving jug too.
Give it all a jolly good stir & you’re done.
