Lemonade on demand

A few weeks ago we were overwhelmed with citrus from the 'orchard'. I love saying that even though it is just a few trees - lemon, lime, tangerine, two orange, apricot. Pretty cool to have an 'orchard'. But not so cool to have too many lemons to know what to do with them. So we scrounged up a juicer and created about a gallon of lemon juice. All by hand mind you. My hand. And it just so happens that a regular muffin tin is about 1/2 cup. So a few batches in the freezer and now we have fresh from the garden lemon juice at all times.

The lemonade has been going down like it is going out of style. We do two frozen hunks which is about 1 cup of lemon juice. 1 cup of simple syrup. (We make that with 2 cups hot water and 2 cups sugar dissolved in it.) And maybe 3 or 4 cups of water. Turns out pretty good.
