"Well, you're wrong about that," I told her. "You can't make lemonade at all without lemons. You just have to know what else to add to it, otherwise it would be called 'lemon juice' instead of 'lemonade'."
"Let's make some then!" she beamed.
Maggie's Super-special Lemonade
- Juice of 4 Lemons
- Juice of 2 Limes
- Water to taste - a quart to two quarts, depending on your particular six-year old. We used almost two
- Sugar to taste - we used a little more than half a cup.
Juice lemons and limes in a large pitcher. Add 1/4 cup of sugar. Mix well until sugar dissolves. Add more water and sugar as needed until you think it's right.
Maggie says to garnish with a couple of lemon seeds and a little bit of pulp, just so you don't forget it's super special and homemade.
