here's my favorite!

Lemonade

2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon peel
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
juice of 6 lemons (1 cup)

Bring lemon peel, sugar, and water to a boil; boil for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat and add the lemon juice.
Cool to room temperature and store syrup in the refrigerator.
For each glass of lemonade use 1/4 cup of syrup with a cup of fizzy water or plain water.
To make lemonade ice cubes, stir 2 tablespoons of syrup per cup of water and freeze as lemonade ice cubes.

Yield: about 10 portions lemonade

Hope you like it!

lugaru, don't know if you've tried it yet, but frank's hot sauce has come out with chili / lime and extra hot versions of their sauce. with your love for limes, i thought you'd be interested.

I like this one from Paula Dean

2 cups sugar
1 cup hot water
2 cups fresh lemon juice
1 gallon cold water
1 lemon, sliced
Mint sprigs, for garnish

In a 1 gallon container, place sugar and hot water, and stir until sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice and cold water to render 1 gallon. Stir until well mixed. Pour lemonade over glasses of ice, squeeze slice of lemon on top of each, and garnish with a sprig of mint.

Have you got one without sugar?

I can do everything else, it might be do able without the sugar.

Luvs, if it is 56 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, it is VERY COLD WHERE YOU ARE.

Alaska?

If you want a cold drink, you have got the central heating turned up to high.

Turn it down, and sufer like the rest of us.

Man you guys have me dreaming of summer sitting by the pool sipping lemonade.

I am going to move this thread to the beverages section of the board.
