Since Chris and I have been spending many grueling hours doing manual labor in our back yard the past few weeks, we decided it was time to find a refreshing summer drink to quench our thirst while we slave away. So I whipped up some homemade lemonade and, let me tell you, it definitely did the trick!
Recipe: (this is hardly an 'original' recipe... I do not take credit for creating it. these are just the rough amounts I used of everything.)
1 gallon of cold, filtered water
9-10 organic lemons, juiced
2-3 sliced organic lemons
1/2 -3/4 cup Agave Nectar (to your taste)
A handful or two of ice cubes
Mix, chill, and enjoy! A great fresh, summery drink. I think there are many more pitchers of this in our future. Now if only I could find food grade lavender to add to the mix!
