It is time for a new magical beverage! So I thought I would channel my inner Dumbledore and make some magic out of lemons! His quotes give me life and so much comfort. I absolutely love Professor Dumbledore! I kept this really really simple but added magic a long the way in the creative process. A long with lemons I used vanilla and fresh sprigs of thyme to make a more complex flavour profile and ultimate refreshment. Of course this lemonade has to be THE summer drink and best served over ice. Make sure you have a magical/witchy flask or bottle to pour it out. This really helps with the magical experience en enjoyment of the beverage.
To enjoy with 3 MUGGLES or witches:
- 5 lemons used + one more for garnish🍋
- 125 grams organic sugar
- 5 sprigs of thyme
- one drop of vanilla extract (make sure it is good quality)
- 125 ml fresh water
Peel the skin from the five lemons. Only remove the skin and not the white parts because those are very bitter and for this drink you want only the freshness. Add all the other ingredients to a medium-sized saucepan and bring up to a boil. Turn down the heat when boiling to a slow simmer and let your cauldron bubble away for 10 minutes. After ten minutes strain the lemon syrup and let the mixture cool completely. 🍋 Add some ice cubes to your glass, sprig of thyme and lemon slices. Add the syrup to taste and top with fizzy or flat water. So good and super refreshing! Enjoy the magic 🧙🏽♀️
