With the current changeable weather, you’ve got to make the most of the sunshine when you can.

So if you want a refreshing drink you can whip up quickly, lemonade is the perfect option.

You’ll be sipping it while lying back on your sun lounger in no time.

Great for a picnic, you just need lemons, sugar and water and in terms of equipment, grab a saucepan, grater, lemon squeezer and sieve.

Obviously, as you’re just using tap water, this is a still lemonade and won’t have the fizziness of the stuff you buy in the supermarket, but it will have that citrus flavour.

This recipe makes 1.5l so there should be plenty to go round.

For an adults-only version, mix it with some vodka or gin.

  • Zest of a lemon
  • 300g of caster sugar
  • 300ml water
  • Juice from six lemons
  • 1.5l of water


  1. Start by putting the zest of a lemon, 300g of caster sugar and 300ml of water in a large saucepan. Stir it over a medium heat for approximately 4 minutes until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Once dissolved, remove from the heat and add the juice of six lemons, 1.5 litre of water and stir.
  3. Next, pour it through a sieve to remove any pulp and then pour into a jug and chill.
  4. Using a fine sieve strain the liquid into a jug and chill in the fridge. This can be enjoyed for up to 3 days but must be kept cool.
