Refreshing Summer Drink

Kids LOVE it!  And only 2 ingredients plus water!

INGREDIENTS:

One two litter bottle of Diet 7-Up
2 packets of Crystal Light Fruit Punch Pitcher Packets (generic works just as well, I really prefer generic.  This is just what I had on hand)
Water

 

DIRECTIONS:

This is SO SO simple.

In a large pitcher add 2 packets of Fruit Punch Mix.  The WHOLE 2 little bottle of 7-UP.  And Stir until the mix is dissolved.  Then add water to taste.  I usually add about 3 to 5 cups!

~Enjoy!~

 

Old Fashioned Fresh Lemonade

So easy!  And much better for you than store-bought!

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups of Sugar
Water
5 to 7 Lemons, enough to make a cup of lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

1.  The first thing to making Fresh Lemonade is making a simple syrup/sugar.  In a sauce pan over medium heat place 1 1/2 cups water and 1 1/2 cups sugar.   Stirring until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat to cool.

2.  Next you need the  juice of about 5 to 7 lemons.  Enough to make a cup.

3.  After you have your lemons juiced.  Then you need to add the one cup of lemon juice to 1 cup of simple sugar.

4.  I then like to start by adding 4 cups of cold water.  Stir and then taste.  If it needs more simple sugar mixture add it.  More water, add it in.

5.  Chill in the fridge.

Serve Cold!  Great for  summer and so simple to make!

~Enjoy!~
