… make lemonade! it’s a nice metaphor that encourages us to adopt a more positive attitude and make the best of challenging situations. yet the saying has also inspired us to take this quite literally this month and offer you a great early summer recipe for refreshing lemonade.
Making delicious lemonade is easier than you think. When you make it yourself, you can be sure the drink contains no additives or colouring agents. When preparing lemonade, our matteo measuring jug set is the ideal aid. Measure the ingredients, squeeze the lemons, then bottle – with it, you can prepare the whole recipe in one single container.
and this is what you need for a simple lemonade:
50 g sugar
1 litre of water
As the so-called icing on top, and if you like it: a little bit of ginger & mint leaves
when life gives you lemons: preparation
Take the citrus press and place it on the measuring jug so that you can squeeze all four lemons completely. Thanks to the silicone base, you can press firmly, without worrying about the measuring jug shifting. This way, you can also squeeze out even the very last drop of the lemon juice – delicious!
A keeeper tip: you can briefly heat the water in the microwave and only then add it to the lemon juice. Now still add the sugar and stir until it has dissolved.
Now place the lemonade in the fridge to chill. Before serving, simply add a few ice cubes, slices of lemon and, if you like, a few pieces of ginger and mint leaves. This doesn’t only look beautiful; it also gives your lemonade the finishing (optical) touches.
Thanks to the practical lid, you can also use our matteo for pouring. The lid has three different openings that can be used for closing, pouring and for holding back little pieces (e.g. pulp).
And if you would like to save the delicious rest for later, simply put on the lid and place it back in the fridge – we guarantee it will still taste good the next day.
Needless to say, this recipe can be varied and supplemented according to taste. You can use a variety of different fruits or simply make tasty syrup consisting of lemon juice and sugar. Add a shot of it to mineral water, and you’ll have a refreshing “spritzer”.
Did you know that lemons don’t only taste delicious but also are really healthy? And this not only because of the high vitamin C content, but also due to their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. Experts even recommend drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice every day to stay fit and healthy. Great news, right?
This means: ready, steady, go … straight to our matteo!
We wish you lots of fun when trying it out and keep it sour!
