Lemon AID: Beat the Heat!

by

Summer is officially in full swing…and so is this darned hot weather!  Unfortunately, as my apartment is lacking the luxury of air-conditioning, I am left to swelter.  To me though, something that can give me succur during a blistering day is a tall, cool glass of lemonade.  Beat the heat with cute citrus-inspired niceties ‘n knickknacks!

  1. Lemon Lip Gloss– to perfect your pucker, use this zingy lemon lip cream from C.O. Bigelow.CO Bigelow Lemon Lip Cream
  2. Citrus-Striped Party Dress– Stay cool in this darling vintage frock from Avant GaudyAvant Gaudy Dress
  3. Perfect Lemonade Recipe– Wet your whistle with a refreshing glass of lemonade SuperStock_1612R-16135

Gather:  1 cup sugar, 1 cup water (for simple syrup), 4-6  lemons, 3-4 cups cold water (to dilute).

Go:

  1. Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
  2. While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4-6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
  3. Add the juice and sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3-4 cups of cold water to taste.

    

   4.  Bejeweled Cubes– I was so pumped when I came across these ice-cube trays on worldwidefred.com.  Even your beverages can be glamorous with these ice cubes inspired by precious stones!
