When did lemons get such a bad rap anyway? As far as I’m concerned, life can throw a bushel of lemons straight at me and I will not only make lemonade, but I will feed you lemons all day long
- lemon curd pie
- lemon vinaigrette
- ceviche with lemon juice
- lemon zest cookies
- lemon/ rosemary chicken….etc, etc, etc….
- AND yes, probably lemonade
The way I see it is, it’s not really what life throws at you that is good or bad, but rather how you react to the lemons life sends your way.
So I am drinking lemonade this stuffy spring day in Central Florida. Yes, life threw lemons at me, but who doesn’t get lemons once in a while…Plus I wasn’t gonna let them rot in the fridge!!!
- lemon juice from as many lemons as you like
- fresh mint leaves ( as many as you wish)
- crushed ice over the mint leaves
- honey, sugar, or stevia
- water to fill glass
I’m sure everyone can make lemonade, but the minty flavor does pop up if you crush the ice against the leaves inside the glass with a spoon. =) Enjoy and have a great week!
