Fruity summer drink

How to make lemonade and why yourself?

The soft drinks from the supermarket often contain far too much sugar and unhealthy additives. You can safely do without them by making your own soda.

You determine the amount of sweeteners yourself. And only fresh, natural ingredients go into your drink.

You can experiment with fruits, herbs, flowers and create your favorite lemonade. Besides, homemade simply tastes the best.

More flavor thanks to herbs and blossoms

You can add more flavor and aroma to your soda by refining it with various herbs or blossoms. For example, you can add mint, rosemary or basil. Lavender or elderflower not only provide an irresistible scent, but also make your drink a refreshing eye-catcher.

Sweeten to taste

You can sweeten your homemade lemonade classically with a sugar syrup or with sugar. But also agave syrup or maple syrup are suitable if you want to do without sugar. In addition, I have here some lemonade recipes for you, which are sugar free.

How to serve and store homemade lemonade?

Serve your homemade lemonade chilled with ice cubes. You can add pieces of fruit, berries and herbs to it.

Homemade soda is perfect for a summer party or picnic. But you can also enjoy it on an ordinary warm summer evening on your terrace or balcony.

Of course, homemade lemonade tastes best fresh. The leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 – 3 days. Especially the carbonated soda should be stored in a sealable glass bottle**.
