Support your child's inner entrepreneur this summer by helping their lemonade stand really stick out from the competition! How about infusing plain ol' lemonade with ginger or lemongrass or lavendar? Start with our simple base lemonade reci-pea and offer one or a few flavor additions for passer-byers to customize their lemonade!
This should be slightly concentrated because it will be diluted later with one of the flavor infusions below.
3/4 cup sugar
7 lemons, juiced5 cups cold water
2 trays of ice cubes
Pour a cup of boiling water over 1 of the following aromatics and let steep 10 minutes. Strain and put in the fridge to chill.
lavender: 1/2 cup dried
ginger: 2 inch piece, sliced into thin rounds, about 12 slices
lemongrass: 3 stalks, bruised, cut crosswise into 1/4 inch rounds
garam masala: 2 Tablespoons
hibiscus tea: 4 tea bags
Start with ice in a cup. Depending on the size of the cup, add 1-2 Tablespoons or more of a flavor infusion and then fill the glass with the base lemonade. Stir and serve.
