When you were younger, did you ever have a summertime lemonade stand? A fun summer tradition to start with your young ones, can be to have a family lemonade stand. Of course, the most important thing to take care of with a lemonade stand is the summertime lemonade itself! This recipe is one of our favorites.
Start with 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of lemon juice, and 1 cup of water. The secret, as we’ve found out, is to create a lemonade sugar syrup rather than just mixing the sugar in (which you can also do if that is what you prefer). This allows the sugary mix to dissolve into the lemonade rather than sink to the bottom of the pitcher.
To make the lemonade sugar syrup, heat sugar (1 cup) and water (1 cup) in a pan until the sugar has completely dissolved. Then, obtain the juice from 4 to 5 lemons. Place the sugar water and lemon juice inside of a pitcher (full of 3 to 4 cups of cold water). Now place in the refrigerator and wait 30mins for your delicious lemonade!
Setting Up Your Summertime Lemonade Stand
To create the perfect lemonade stand, think of using a CareABoo blanket as a picnic blanket of sorts. Instead of sitting, children can stand barefoot on the blanket while serving the residents of the neighborhood. The blanket can also be used as a folded up seat-cushion for tired little legs. As always, CareABoo blankets can be helpful and incredibly soft addition to your summer plans.
