Miss Lucy's Lemonade

Magnus had a sample of this the other day after my bible study and was hooked. Since it was a warm day anyways, we decided to make some of our own. Our lemon tree has not produced fruit yet so we had to get our lemons from the store. This didn't taste or smell as good as Miss Lucy's. Grow your own meyer lemons everyone!!!

                           Look how hard he is working to juice the lemon!

 Did I mention this boy loves the taste of lemons? His Grandma got him started on drinking lemon water since he was a youngen and now he can't stop!

Delicious! Here's the recipe:

1 lemon sliced
1 1/2 C of sugar
2 C of lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
7 C of water

Take the sliced lemon and add the sugar in a pitcher. Mash the heck out of it, until the sugar and lemon are in love. Add the 2 c of lemon juice, swirl, add the water, swirl again and done! There will be the leftover rinds and such from the sliced lemon-that's okay. It adds such a yummy aroma from the oils released from the rind. I hope you like it too!
