How to Make Fresh Squeezed Country Lemonade

There is sim­ply noth­ing like Fresh Squeezed Coun­try Lemon­ade in the Sum­mer time. I pairs well with a hot day by the pool or after weed­ing the gar­den in the scorch­ing Sum­mer heat. It’s refresh­ing in a light and cool­ing way and if you have nev­er had it fresh squeezed then you’re in for a real treat. You may nev­er go back to Coun­try Time again!

Lemon­ade can be served in a vari­ety of ways. Warm lemon­ade served with raw local hon­ey can help ease chest con­ges­tion and may also help soothe a sore throat and stuffy nose. This is a good tip to keep in your back pock­et for lat­er.

Serv­ing lemon­ade chilled with fruit infu­sions in a great way to play with fla­vors. Place fruits like straw­ber­ry, or even cucum­ber and mint direct­ly in your pitch­er before serv­ing or offer then ore sliced to guests on a chilled serv­ing tray.

I like my lemon­ade sweet and have cre­at­ed this recipe for what I per­son­al­ly beleive to be the opti­mal blend of sweet and sour. If you want a more tart lemon­ade I sug­gest scal­ing back the sug­ar or sub­si­tut­ing with hon­ey to suit your taste.
