One unfortunate aspect of living in Manchester is its famous dismal, rainy weather . Since the end of August is still technically summer, we decided to defy the gloomy weather by helping ourselves to homemade lemonade.
Ingredients: 3 lemons, 2 limes, 1 cup of sugar, 7 cups of water, lemon slices and ice for decoration, cold Mancunion weather (optional)
Take one cup of sugar and 1 cup of water and heat gently on the stove until the all the sugar is dissolved. Add the sugar syrup to the juice of the lemons and limes in a jug, and add the remaining cups of water. You might want to add more water if its too strong for you. Chill and serve.
To make it extra citrusy, you can juice the lemons as normal and boil the spent lemons in the water and leave to cool. You might want to make sure that the lemons are wax-free first.
