Warm weather is coming and a few good drink recipes are a must for those lazy summer days. If you’re having a backyard barbeque or a party to watch your favorite baseball team, this is a drink you should absolutely make. It’s seriously simple and amazingly delicious. I couldn’t get over how tasty it was. I really had my doubts especially with how little went into making this. A total of 4 ingredients. That’s it!
1 C lemon juice
1 C sugar
6 C water
12 ice cubes
In a large freezer safe dish, mix lemon juice sugar and water. Make sure you have ample room in whatever dish you choose, just for safety sake. It'd be a shame to spill some of this delicious mix on your way to the freezer. Stir until sugar has dissolved completely. Add in 12 ice cubes. Carefully transfer to the freezer. We have a double bottom drawer freezer and man that was obnoxious to carefully inch the drawer closed without spilling the lemonade mixture. Every hour, for 4 to 6 hours, take a fork and break up the lemonade. The first hour or two you won't have too much to break up, but it's still important to check it. I wasn't satisfied with the consistency until about 6 hours. If you don't mind it more liquidy than frozen slivers, less time may work for you. Six hours gave us a delicious drink of slushie slivers with a bit of liquid, but not too much. It was the perfect amount of liquid and ice. So good. Mmm. You might want a spoon with your drink. I was actually wishing for one of those giant spoon straws I once got at Dairy Queen, that'd have been perfect for this. If you don't finish all of the frozen lemonade at once, keep it in the freezer overnight and just toss in the fridge or on the counter until it has thawed out enough to your liking, remembering to stab and mush up the mixture to break up the big pieces.
