Summer homemade lemon drink recipe

In the summer heat of Africa you need a thirst quencher.  Being someone who loves something not too sweet, and not being a lover of fizzy drinks, this is the perfect summer water drink…  (I’m struggling to drink just plain water….I’m trying, but I’m struggling.)

Summer Drink made with lemons

You need:  Lemons and water – and/or fresh ingredients like cucumber and apple… etc, but only IF you would like to add more.

Lemon Flavored Water for the Summer:

  • Wash the lemons well
  • Slice lemons fairly thin
  • Add lemon slices to a glass pitcher
  • Fill the pitcher with water
TIP: If you let it steep for up to 2 or 3 hours or even overnight you’ll have stronger fruit-flavored water and you can anything else that you love like mint, strawberries, or lime…
