A Recipe for Four More Lemons

I actually thought I was done with citrus fruits and the endless juicing thereof, but I got a mad craving for lemonade so I bought some more lemons. I HAVE A PROBLEM, OKAY? Anyway the lemons in question turned out to have a super think peel and didn’t give enough juice for straight lemonade so I decided to berry it up.

Berry Lemonade

Mixed Berry Lemonade
• juice of 4 lemons
• 4 cups of water
• 1 cup of sugar
• ½ cup chopped strawberries
• ½ cup blackberries
• ½ cup blueberries

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the berries, sugar and 1 cup of water. Stir until sugar is dissolved and simmer for fifteen minutes. Allow to cool completely and strain through a fine sieve to remove berry pieces. Mix resulting berry syrup with the lemon juice and 3 remaining cups of water. Chill and enjoy!
