If you’re bummed out about your long weekend being over, make this lemonade esta noche to cheer yourself up. If you’re catatonically bummed out, add liquor and then look for a new job.
1/2 c lemon juice (~4 large lemons)
1/3 c cane sugar
4 c water
Optional: raspberries or other fruit to garnish, vodka
- Stir or shake ingredients until well combined.
- Pour lemonade over ice and garnish / spike at will.
Keeps for about a week in the fridge and, if you use them, will become more and more pink due to the raspberries.
