To celebrate all that is wonderful about summer, which for me is the fact that there's no snow (yay), the Hero Hostesses have gotten together for a fun week-long blog hop.
You should be arriving from the blog of talented Hostess Virginia. If not, please start at the beginning of the hop here at the Hero Arts Blog where you'll find the master list. If you find a broken link on the hop please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
On a hot summer day one of the things that I think of is a frosty glass of lemonade to help quench my thirst. So to honour that I've made a card with a jar of lemonade.
I'm sharing a recipe for Sparkling Lemonade, a drink I have on hand all summer for those who don't drink alcohol, like me.
2 ½ cups each granulated sugar and water
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and mixture becomes clear, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Squeeze enough lemons to make 2 cups of lemon juice (approx. 10-12 lemons). Combine with the simple syrup and store in glass container in refrigerator.
For lemonade place ice cubes in a highball glass, add ¾ cup (6oz) of lemon mixture and top off with ½ cup (4oz) of carbonated or sparkling water and serve with a lemon slice.
This is a pretty tart beverage so the ratio of lemon mixture to sparkling water can be adjusted to suit individual tastes.
Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!
Now onto Anita's blog. I can't wait to see her creation!
