This will only interest a few . . . namely, expats living in the UK or Europe.

Those born and raised on this side of the pond, who don't know proper lemonade, will continue drinking that fizzy yellow lemon-flavoured soft-drink that they call lemonade. Those on the other side are fortunate enough to have real lemonade. It's the expats, the ones who miss lemonade, who will want to file this away for those summer days when nothing but lemonade will quench the thirst.


For every liter of cold water, add 1/4 cup lemon juice (either fresh squeezed or bottled) and 1/2 cup sugar (or equivalent in sugar substitute). Stir until sugar is dissolved, add some ice, perhaps float a few lemon slices on top to make it gorgeous in that big glass pitcher that's gathered dust all winter on the top shelf . . . and sit back in the garden and enjoy.
