When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! And what’s better than playing with the original, albeit plain, recipe? 🙂
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups sugar
11 lemons, juiced and sieved – plus 2 more sliced
2 litres water (halved)
2 limes, cubed
20 mint leaves
2 cups of cranberry juice

First, make the syrup. Boil 1 litre of water with the sugar until the sugar dissolves. Put it in the fridge for half an hour. In the meantime, squeeze the lemons and put the juice through a sieve. Add the lemon and the cranberry juices to your container of choice along with the other litre of water. Once the half hour is up add the syrup to the juice mix along with the lemons, limes and mint leaves and put it in the fridge for at least an hour before enjoying/serving. 🙂
