Ever since we made homemade ice-cream in a bag we were wondering what else can we make in a bag. Luckily I subscribe to education.com newsletter and this week they sent a recipe for a ziploc bag lemonade. We tried it right away! It’s a great recipe for a hot summer day when you just don’t feel like making a jug of lemonade. Just throw ingredients together and shake it like an Egyptian. Egyptian? Haven’t you heard this expression before? Ok, ok, we made it up when we discovered that the earliest written evidence of lemonade comes from ancient Egypt. But kids liked “shaking it like an Egyptian” so much I think this expression is here to stay.
What you need (for one portion)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup water
What to do
1. Cut lemon into quarters and remove any seeds.
2. Place one quarter into a zipper bag along with 1 tsp of sugar and squeeze.
3. Add 1/2 cup of water and ice, if using. Zip the bag leaving only a small portion to insert a straw.
That’s it! Homemade lemonade in five!
NOTE: Are you going on a picnic or want a fun drink after running around in a park? Before leaving home add lemon and sugar to a ziploc bag and zip the bag securely. Add water when you are at your destination and ready for your homemade refreshment.
