Washington State almost 90+ degree's and climbing. They say that it will get to the mid 90's today on the 4th of July.
I hope you like the fun drinks I found for you all. I read a few of you wanted a non-alcoholic drink and I think I found the perfect one...
How about Watermelon lemonade! So How about Watermelon Lemonade for you inspiration for the Day!
So here are the ingredient & directions for the
1/4 cup [2-ounces] fresh-squeezed lemon juice-[6-7 lemons]
1/2 cup [4-ounces] fresh watermelon puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove all seeds.[1 medium watermelon]
3 Tablespoons [1 1/2 ounces] simple syrup
3/4 cup [6 ounces] cold water
This Watermelon Lemonade will make enough to fill two glasses with ice
cubes; You can quadrupled the amount to fill a pitcher. These are the
Ingredients that you will need to do that;
1/4 cup [2-ounces] fresh-squeezed lemon juice[6-7 lemons]
1/2 cup [4-ounces] fresh watermelon puree, strained through a coarse strainer to remove all seeds[1 medium watermelon]
3 tablespoons [1 1/2 ounces] simple syrup*
Make your own simple syrup:
The syrups in the stores are so bad & too sweet so give this a try I am sure you will love it.
1-Simmer one part water with one part sugar until the sugar has all dissolved. Let sugar completely cool.[ you can use any kinda sugar you would like it just depends on the taste you're looking for. [Theres- white sugar, light & dark brown sugar those would be some good ones to try]. However, I would choose the either light or brown sugar because they have a more rich flavor.
Note: If you do a cup of each ingredient, you will have the quadrupled amount to fill a pitcher.
1-cup fresh squeezed lemon juice[6-7 lemons]
1-cup fresh watermelon puree strained through a coarse strainer to remove all seeds[1 medium watermelon]
1-cup homemade syrup*
1-Cup very cold water
Stir it all together and serve over lots of ice. Garnish with a thin piece of watermelon or lemon wedge if you like.
Another fancy Spritzy variation to the July 4 Beverage is a more bubbly way is by swapping 1/4 cup or more of the ice water with a seltzer or sparkling water.
For those few that would like a bit of bite to your lemonade you always can add your fav' liquor to your own glass so everyone else can enjoy the simple cool lemonade.
I hope that you all have a happy Forth of July & a lovely
Saturday afternoon. I love you all very much too
