Notes

  • If you don’t want to use ordinary sugar in case it doesn’t dissolve into the juice, make a simple sugar syrup by boiling an equal amount of sugar and water until dissolved. Use as desired in the lemonade
  • Pour the lemonade into ice cube tray and freeze.
  • Add the frozen cubes to flavour your water as at when needed. Blend the frozen lemonade to make pineapple slushie.
