How to Make Lindzi's Vintage Lemonade

by Lindzi Ellis

This is my little twist on a traditional lemonade recipe which is cheap, easy and quick but tastes incredible. Best served in your fave vintage lemonade jug!


  • 2 Lemons
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • Water
  • Ice
  • Jug
  • Fresh mint
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Firstly slice and squeeze your lemons and lime into a glass, I don't bother with a juicer, I just squeeze them by hand! I'll show you the best way to get all the juice when squeezing fruit...

    Step 2

    If you roll the lemon or whatever fruit you want to juice under your hand on a flat surface like this, using a bit of pressure, all the juices will naturally be loosened inside!

    Step 3

    Once you've juiced all the lemons and lime scoop out any pips,

    Step 4

    Then fill a similar glass to the same level with sugar, so the quantities are equal, here you can see I have a cup of ice ready too.

    Step 5

    Mix your juice and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved, this won't take long because of the even quantities.

    Step 6

    Pour the sugar-juice mix into your serving jug and top up with cold water.

    Step 7

    Get a couple of mint leaves, fresh mint is best of course, I can thank my friend Cathy for this lil' beauty!

    Step 8

    Twist and crush the mint leaves gently so that the fragrance is released but the leaves aren't broken.

    Step 9

    Add the mint to the lemonade,

    Step 10

    Now pour yourself a nice refreshing glass, you deserve it after all that hard work (!) :)

    Step 11

    This goes great with a rich meal, such as my chicken pasta casserole which I've also got a snap guide on! :) enjoy!
