Salted Lemonade


Before I started blogging again I made some salted lemons.  I used this [the linked post is not published yet] recipe.  I gave away half to my sister and keep finding ways to use them so I know I will be making them again and blogging about how easy they are make.

Salted lemonade is one of those things that sounds both scary and potentially different (in a  wonderful way).  I finally figured out a similar flavor…margarita(ish) – with the salted rim!  Don’t take this comparison too literally though; at best it is an approximation.

Summer is LONG in the South and I simply cannot abide tea for 8 months of the year.  So, I need some easy options.  I have posted about the Lemon, Cucumber, Mint water.  This is another even easier option which is also delicious and refreshing.

  1. Put one salted lemon in the bottom of your glass.
  2. Add sugar, water, and salted lemon juice to taste.  My glass needed about 1 teaspoon juice and sugar when I filled it to near the top with water.

You will find that the seeds don’t float so there is no need to fish them out.

A friend (without any sort of palette – southern, over cooked veggies, etc) suggested that this tastes like an accidental gulp of ocean water!
