My lemon tree is quite generous through winter and I like looking for different recipes to use up my stash. I found this on taste.com.au. The orange blossom flavour is really subtle and this is a nice twist on traditional lemonade.
- 12 lemons
- 6 cups water
- 1 1⁄4 cups caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon orange blossom water
- crushed ice, to serve
- Cut the lemons in half and juice half the lemons.
- Thinly slice the remaining lemons and place in a heatproof bowl.
- Combine the lemon juice, water and sugar in a large saucepan over low heat.
- Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
- Remove from heat and pour warm juice over the lemon slices.
- Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 hours to chill and develop the flavours.
- Stir through the orange blossom water.
- Divide ice evenly among serving glasses.
- Pour over the lemonade to serve.
Simply a wonderful lemonade Mandy. I enjoyed this sweet, tart and tangy citrus treat very much. It was so quick and easy to throw together. I also added 2 tbsps of the orange blossom water to the recipe. For a less subtle flavor. Thank you so much for sharing.
WOW!! I drank a lot of lemonade this summer thanks to this recipe! I did add more than 1Tb orange blossom water - maybe 2TB-ish. Absolutely delicious!! Made for NA*ME Tag. Oops! Made for ??? Oh dear....
