Move Over Beyoncé, Our Lemonade Packs A Punch

So we all know Beyoncé made headlines with her new album Lemonade. Briefly expressing her relationship with Jay-Z. Well, Root7 is here with our very own, slightly different lemonade. Hey, if life gives you lemons make lemonade!

After all lemons make the perfect refreshing drink, especially in summer. It’s easy to make and the ingredients are minimum. We can assure you that after you hear about our delicious lemonade, you’ll be making it in no time!

Plain-Jane Lemonade

For those who prefer traditional lemonade all you will need is:

  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice (6 lemons)

Now for the exciting part. Take a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ½ cup water. Wait until it boils and stir regularly until the sugar is dissolved. Once it has cooled down, mix the syrup with the lemon juice and 2½ to 3 cups water. Top it off with ice and there you have it!

Lemonade with a Twist

This recipe is for those who prefer a slightly naughtier lemonade. By now you should know that we love to Drink Differently so it is with great pleasure, we introduce to you the lemonade with a twist.

You will need the following:

  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 8 cups of ice
  • 4 ounces of vanilla-infused vodka
  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 lemon sliced into rings
  • 1 lime sliced into rings
  • 1 litre of vanilla-infused vodka
  • 2 vanilla beans

 Now, all you need is a small saucepan. Pour water and sugar until it comes to a simmer. Cook until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool. Fill another jug with ice. Stir syrup, vodka, juice, lemon and lime slices.

Split beans lengthwise and add to vodka bottle. Let infuse overnight in a cool dark place. Strain into a separate sterilized bottle. There you have it! Lemonade with a twist.
