I love warm summer days, where I can sit outside, relaxing, with the sun on my face, a new interior magazine and an ice cold bittersweet lemonade in my hand. Ok, having three kids that´s not happening very often. It´s more like me having a lemonade in my hand while I’m throwing a ball, building sand castles or trying to stop the kids from bringing the whole sandbox into the house.

But the fact is, ether way the ice cold lemonade tastes fantastic!

I prefer my lemonade not too sweet, but you can easily make this lemonade sweeter by just adding more syrup.

  2. Let cool.
  3. Squeeze the lemon and lime juice into a big jug.

  5. Taste and add more syrup if you want it sweeter.
