Preparation Time: 5 minutes
(for 1 tall glass)
2 Ounces Lemon or LimeJuice (you’ll need 2-3 lemons or limes)
2 Tablespoons Sugar
Tall Glass (the glass shown is 16 ounces and frosted—straight from the freezer)
1. Use a sharp knife to cut 2-3 lemons or limes in half.
2. Squeeze the juice into a measuring cup so that you get…
…about 2 ounces of juice—it doesn’t have to be exact.
3. Add 2 tablespoons sugar to the juice, and…
…stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
4. Pour the juice and sugar mixture into a tall glass,…
…and fill the glass about two-thirds full with ice.
5. Add enough cold water to fill the glass most of the way full, making sure…
…to leave about an inch of free space at the top of the glass…
…so you can stir the drink comfortably like this. Then…
…top with more ice to fill the glass and serve.
