Lemon Limeade

I'm sure you have all felt as though I have abandoned you. I'm sorry I was gone soooo long... Its been a difficult month. But, as they say... "when life gives you lemons.. make lemonade".. or Lemon Limeade in this case. It has been so hot that I have been needing a cool boost in the middle of the day, not to mention a little sugar kick. It has been the perfect pick-me-up. So, if life has given YOU lemons (and limes) go make this delightful beverage and enjoy the cool refreshing goodness.

(For a special treat I substitute half of the water for club soda.)

Lemon Limeade

1 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
1 c. fresh squeezed lime juice (about 6 limes)
1 1/4 c. sugar (you can adjust for tartness)
6 c. water
1 lemon
1 lime
ice cubes

In small sauce pan warm 1 cup water and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool. Squeeze lemon and limes for fresh juice. In medium pitcher add cooled sugar mixture, water, lemon juice and lime juice. stir. slice remaining lemon and lime into wedges and add to mixture. Pour into tall glass with ice and enjoy!
