From Potluck at Midnight Farm by Tamara Weiss, c. 2002. Tart, refreshing lemonade.
- 3 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 20 lemons)
- 2 cups superfine sugar
- 3 cups water
- 1 1⁄2 cups cranberry juice
- 2 lemons, thinly sliced
- 1 lime, thinly sliced
- 1 cup fresh cranberries (optional)
- Strain the lemon juice and combine it with the sugar in a large serving container or wide-mouthed jar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the water and cranberry juice and stir again. Add a couple of trays of ice to chill the lemonade well. Then add the lemon and lime slices, and the cranberries, if you care to, and serve.
I'm always looking for something new to make to drink during all this hot weather, and this quenched my thirst!
Great lemonade. Not too sweet. Loved the added cranberry flavor. Very refreshing on a hot day :)
I had made up a big pitcher of lemonade from lemons I'd bought at the Market earlier today and, having cranberry juice in the cupboard, I lucked out with this recipe. It is so good. Very tart and sweet and refreshing. Added LOTS of ice.
