Lemonade—sweet, sour, sitting-under-a-tree-on-a-summer-day lemonade.
A pitcher of lemonade doesn't last long around our family. But I don't think anyone enjoys it more than I do. If we happen to have lemons on hand, I'm sure to make a gallon of it and drink it all up! At least that's what I have in mind.
Since we're on the health conscious side, we use sweeteners like honey, or our latest favorite, stevia.
Simple Stevia Lemonade
Makes 1 gallon
1 tsp. Liquid Stevia
Ice, enough to half fill a gallon size pitcher.
Water to fill
Cut a few lemon slices and put aside for garnishing (optional). Cut lemons in half and squeeze into pitcher. Slice squeezed lemons and add to the juice. Add water, then stevia. Stir. Use more or less lemons or stevia to get it just right. Garnish glasses with lemon slices. Serve immediately....before the ice melts!
