Kathe's Kitchen: "Homemade Lem♥onade"

I was recently given a recipe for Lemonade from my good friend Sally.
Well, I have adapted and added my own twist, and here it is ...

Kathe's "Homemade Lem♥onade"

 
Kathe's "Homemade Lem♥onade"
Zest of 3 Lemons
Juice of 8 Lemons
3 cups of Water
3 cups of Sugar  {next time I may reduce the Sugar!!!!}
1 teaspoon Citric Acid
1 teaspoon Tartaric Acid
1/4 teaspoon Epsom Salts

After juicing the Lemons, I then strained the juice to get rid of any stray seeds etc.
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil and then simmer for 1 minute.
Leave to cool before bottling.
 


 
 
                         Bottle is shaken here,                         Bottle is NOT shaken here
                      note the Zest floating ... 

This recipe is very strong, so you only need to add a fraction of syrup to a glass {approx. 1cm in depth} before topping with carbonated water i.e. Soda Stream {but without the flavour added} .
An xtra cool and refreshing drink, which any spirit can be added to, Vodka, Tequila, Gin ... yum!!!
 

I just had to add a video of the drink bubbling away, the spray of the bubbles were jumping so high that they actually touched the camera!
