Sparkling Pink Lemonade

This recipe today is not actually for food but for a drink! Now I actually took a picture of this recipe about 1 year ago and I'm pretty sure it's a Tesco one but I can't be totally certain. The recipe has very simple steps but it certainly calls for a fair bit of muscle work and patience!

For the ingredients you will need:

  • 6 Lemons
  • 150g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons of Grenadine Syrup
  • 1 Litre of Sparkling Mineral Water
First:

You need to zest the lemons, I used a grater for this, after that you need to juice the lemons, it's a lot of elbow grease but it'll be worth it!

Second:

Put the zest, juice and caster sugar into a heatproof jug. Then add 500ml of freshly boiled water into the jug, and stir until the sugar has dissolved.

Third:

Add the grenadine syrup, I personally didn't stir the mixture. Then leave the drink to fully cool. After it's cooled put it in the fridge, covered, to chill.

Four:

Finally, strain the mixture into a sealable bottle of some sort, I used a two litre plastic bottle (the glass bottle is just for show!) and then water it down by adding your litre of sparkling water.


 I know there are only 5 lemons here, thats because there was only 5 pack available. Although I did add another lemon to make 6.
