Homemade Lemonade!

This past Tuesday, being Melbourne Cup day,  we got a public holiday- despite living 3 hours away from Melbourne. This is what Mr and Master Apple and Tangerine got up to. They looked through recipe books, made two different recipes (we were keen on the 'blind taste test' idea). Decided that one was too sweet, one not sweet enough so mixed them together and bottled them. Master 9 wrote the labels and has been very proud of his drink, and happy that he had more cordial in the last few days than ever before!! Anyone got a great lemon cordial/ lemonade recipe to share (and any one know what the difference between those two is?)
It's Friday- happy weekend to you all.


  1. Mulberries and now lemons, I am soooo jealous. Now I really do wish I lived down the road. We tried growing lemon trees the first few years we lived here but the frost got them each time. Hope you have a great weekend too.

  2. Oh, I am citrus-obsessed, I wish I could enjoy some of your lemony goodness. Unfortuntely the two lemon trees I attempted to plant in pots behind our flat are looking dismal. I'll keep my ear to the ground for lemonade/cordial recipes...

  3. Wow- this is so inspiring, and exactly how I want to be spending my summer days! Thanks for the inspiration/kick up the bum :-)

  4. nice work there! love that you have great helpers.

    here's a link which talks about the difference between cordial & squash/lemonade

    have a great day ♥
