frozen Lemonade

Summer + warm California weather + cooking = too darn hot temperature inside the house.

This is exactly what happened while I was cooking my sardine pasta yesterday. Since I had zest-less lemons (I used the zest for the pasta recipe), I thought of making frozen lemonade. It definitely hit the and refreshing... and a fraction of the price of frozen lemonade sold at the resto that I get it from.


1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 to 1 cup sugar
2 + 1 cup water
2 cups ice cubes

1. In a small sauce pan, add 1 cup water and 3/4 cup sugar.Heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let it cool. Set aside.

2. Pour the above mixture in a blender and add lemon juice. Blend to mix well.

3. Add 1 cup water and 1 cup of ice cubes to the blender and blend well until smooth.

4. Add the remaining ice cubes and water and blend again until smooth. NOTE: If you prefer your lemonade to be less strong, add more water and ice, blend until smooth.

5. Transfer to a tall glass and serve immediately.
