A refreshing #stayathome activity: homemade lemonade
From the book 'Wat zullen we drinken' by Joachim Boudens: a fun activity to do with kids on a sunny day. The result is refreshing and much healthier than store-bought lemonade!
Fills 1 glass
For the base:
4 organic oranges (preferably pesticide-free, and if not, rinse them thoroughly)
1 organic lemon (preferably pesticide-free, and if not, rinse it thoroughly)
fresh mint leaves
How to make it:
1. Peel the citrus fruits with a peeler, and save the peels. Then squeeze the peeld fruits.
2. Measure off 10 cl of juice, 75 g of cane sugar and let the sugar dissolve in the juice.
3. Infuse the citrus juice with the citrus peels for 2,5 hours at room temperature. Pour everything through a sieve afterwards - this is your base.
4. Pour 4 cl of the base into a glass and add 1 cl of lemon juice and 15 cl of sparkling water.
Finish off with some fresh mint leaves and repeat for the other glasses.
