Life has given you lemons…

To be brutally honest with you, I’ve never really got the saying ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!’ mostly because I really like lemons, in particular that uncomfortable tang that hits the side of your tongue and makes you screw your face up. Maybe I am a masochist? I don’t know, probably. But if you are inclined to be feeling a little crappy, I’d suggest grabbing your favourite things (for me, that’s flowers, @pugthepoppy, and some records) and make some bloody lemonade!


Today I am wearing a cute little skirt I picked up this week from Weekends Boutique, I believe their target market is for the ‘mature lady’, but that basically just means my bottom fits into things – it has pockets and they have some lovely stuff – top is from H&M and shoes from Kmart – I love a bargain!


So, here is my delicious traditional lemonade recipe, it takes 15 minutes to make and is a total crowd pleaser!

You will need:

6 lemons (to make a cup of juice)

1 cup of sugar

6 cups of water (1 warm cup and 5 to add to the mix later)

Ice and sliced lemon to serve


  1. Put the cup of sugar in a medium sized pot, add 1 cup of warm water from the tap, pop the stove on high and give it a little stir, until you can’t see the sugar anymore. Remove.
  2. While that cools, juice your lemons, baby!
  3. Add the whole kit and caboodle into one fantastic looking vessel, add ice, and voila!


I personally added a cheeky shot of gin, it was so delicious I had two! Poppy even sealed it with a kiss!
