Favorite Ingredients Friday for June 15
This is my first time to participate in Favorite Ingredients Friday and I'm enthused about it! This week's edition features refreshing drinks, so here's my nomination for the most refreshing summer drink I know of:
3/4 cup sugar 2/3 cup lemon juice 3 cups cold water 1 cup cranberry juice
Combine the sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the cold water and the cranberry juice. Pour into a pitcher and refrigerate until well chilled. Serve over ice.
Yield: approximately 1 quart
One quart of this is just not enough! I usually triple the recipe and keep it in a gallon-size jar with a spigot in the fridge. We just pour it over ice as needed.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
