Lime’n’Lemonade for when it gets too hot

image

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.

Lime’n’Lemonade

  • 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.

Project 365: Day 210

Following on from Day 209, I won £2.80 on the lottery. First time I’ve ever played.

This weekend I went to see a couple of old university friends and former house mates for a barbecue, a few beers, and a catch up. Luckily the weather was perfect.

Here’s me with Ellie, my university house mate from second and third year, enjoying a burger.

Project 365: Day 135

Getting ready for festival times. I brought this T-shirt and a pair of cropped jeans from New Look to wear at Download next month. I have very little festival clothing knowledge but surely I’m on the right lines here.

Project 365: Day 129

This is what I call “Fun Fashion”.

Here’s me having a ‘kick-about’ in the back garden with Shandie, whilst wearing my brand new blue jeans. Usually I go for dark coloured jeans but it’s getting closer to summer now and although it’s not quite hot enough for shorts and mid lengths, light coloured jeans are the next best thing. These are also quite thin compared to normal jeans so perfect for a summer evening’s walk.

£19.99 from New Look
