Lime’n’Lemonade for when it gets too hot


Typical Brits. We wait seven years for the sun to come out and when it does we complain. Granted the heatwave has come as a bit of a shock to many who thought it would be a repeat of last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, but I am just so happy Britain is finally getting a summer.

If you can’t take the heat though you can cool down with this Lime’n’Lemonade recipe.


  • 6 limes (1 sliced)
  • 5 lemons (1 sliced)
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 100ml cold water
  • 1 litre soda water
  • Lots of ice cubes

Start by putting the fruit slices on a tray and leaving in the freezer for an hour. Roughly chop up the rest of the lemons and limes and put in a food processor or blender. Add the sugar and water and blend. Push the mixture through a sieve into a bowl until you have as much juice out of it as possible. Add the soda water and stir. Add the lemon and lime slices and the ice cubes. Serve.
