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.
