Lemonade for Sale!

Lemonade for sale! Twenty-five cents! Snow cones for a limited time! Seventy-five cents!

The boys had their first 'offical' lemonade stand today. It's been hot and muggy all day, and around 2:00 Calvin asked if they could have a lemonade stand. Of course! I quickly made a double batch and put it in one of the coolers, and they quickly made some signs. Caleb also got out his snow cone maker and decided they would be a 'limited time only' type of thing. :) Get this -- they made over FIFTEEN dollars!!!

Our lemonade recipe:

1 c hot water
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c Santa Cruz Organic 100% Lemon Juice
4 c cold water

Mix hot water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add lemon juice and cold water. Stir and enjoy!

This is really good with fresh squeezed lemon juice, but we fly through it like crazy, so it's a lot easier (and almost as good) to use the bottled juice. I went through an entire bottle today -- good thing I purchase it by the case!
