Citrus Lemonade

The very best lemonade you will ever have the pleasure of tasting!

I stumbled upon this recipe because I was being cheap.
I think lemons are totally overpriced and was looking for a cheaper way to stretch my lemonade budget.
Enter: the Orange.

I decided to go for a tasty experiment. I bought the standard bag of lemons, a couple big oranges, and then thought was the heck, I love limes, so best not to leave those out.

The result, an amazing citrus lemonade!

What you will need:

6 lemons
2 oranges
3 limes
1 cup sweetener
10 cups water

How to do it:

Begin by boiling half the water in a saucepan

While you wait, start halving the citrus and juicing the heck out of ’em.
I just leave the pulp and everything in. Yum!

Once the water boils, stir in the sweetener til it dissolves.
Remove from heat and let cool

Pour citrus juice into juice pitcher or carafe
Stir in sweetened water and remaining cups of water

Refrigerate til cool
Serve over ice.

Pro tip: I recently invested in a $4 juicer which had made my life 100x easier.

My kid has been guzzling this lemonade, so I now have to drink it in secret!
