Taste of Yellow - Jacqui's Lemon Squash
This month's Monthly Mingle is devoted to Barbara.
For several years, Barbara set up a Blogging Event called a Taste of Yellow.
It was to raise awareness for Cancer Research linking in with LiveStrong Day
Bloggers were invited to submit recipes featuring yellow food.
Always an interesting event.
Cook Sister is hosting the Monthly Mingle this month
What a great Tribute to Barbara
My friend Jacqui was a very good friend of Barbara.
A Virtual friend whats more...they had known one another for years.
In fact, Jacqui introduced me to Barbara.
Jacqui doesn't have her own blog yet, so I am submitting her entry through So Simple.
I love the photo, it would do Barbara proud
It's a simple Lemon Squash, refreshing and perfect for a Hot Summers Day
9 drops lemon juice
3 tsp sugar syrup
To make the Sugar Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and water.
Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.
Allow to cool
This will keep for ages in the fridge
Mix lemon juice with sugar syrup in a highball glass,
stir well and fill up with soda water.
Serve with drinking straw.
Multiply quantity by number of guests.
P.S. I reckon a good slug of Vodka or Gin would be an added extra
