Best Lemonade Ever Review!

Summer's coming 
 Best Lemonade Ever
This lemonade is some of the best I have ever  
had. I did use a little less sugar, but will try the full amount next time to see the difference. I put fresh mint with it and it was a nice mixture. If you like lemonade, try this. You won't be disappointed.


Put lemons in microwave for 20-30 seconds

Roll lemons back and forth a few times

Lemons are easy to squeeze and they come out clean
by putting in microwave and rolling them.
Put  juice in fridge and keep cool until ready to make

Put sugar in pan

Add 1 cup of water

Bring to boil- Remove from heat and let cool

Then put in fridge (right next to the Moscato) and let get cold

Pour lemon juice in pitcher

Pour cold sugar water in pitcher

Add 7 cups water and mix well

I added lemon slices and fresh mint from my garden



Original recipe makes 20 (4 ounce) servings

         1 3/4 cups white sugar
(I used 11/2 cups sugar but next time I will try the 13/4 cups)
         8 cups water
         1 1/2 cups lemon juice

 In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

Just a quick note about the recipe for ribs and smoked potatoes I wrote last night.

 Our friends Tom and Solie came over with pitchers of kick-ass Margaritas and they were so good. 

Anyway, later after they left and I was pretty buzzed I guess I decided to finish the rib blog. Ha Ha. I was going to go in and  change  some things that I normally would not put n a blog but Don said, "No".  He thought it was funny and wanted me to leave it alone, so I did.

 So that is what's up with the odd comments in the ribs blog. Just thought I should explain that.

 I hope everyone is having a super Sunday. I know I am. More about that later. :)

****I don't drink red wine but Don prefers it.
 So tonight he is trying this one. 
Don says it has a fruity taste.  It's not as dry as most cabernets.  Don says he would recommend it. He  gives this 4 out of 5 stars  for this price range.  He says it is a great bottle of red wine in the $15-$20 price point. Don  says it would go well with any red meat or tomato based pasta dish. For an everyday wine, this is one of Don's favorites.
