Remember the time when we could set up a lemonade stand and sell glasses of lemonade by the side of the road or from our drive way? I think we even gave glasses of lemonade away! I loved giving a nice cold glass to the post man as he walked by on his rounds. And taking a glass to the neighbor as he mowed his grass. My sister and I would be so proud when he would say, “That is the best lemonade I have ever had…” I don’t think we charged him either. But it was still so much fun!
For a limited time only we are featuring The Lemonade Stand.
The dates are: Thursday July 25th, Friday July 26th and Saturday July 26th with mini photography sessions that are 20 minutes in length and by appointment only.
This is a wonderful summertime theme that is great for children or the whole family! The set is going to be beautiful and have all the finishing touches! (Even ice cold lemonade!) Outdoors and a tad rustic. This is a three day only event. We have a few session openings left for Friday and Saturday. And a couple of openings for Thursday afternoon/evening. Session fee is $25 and a $150 minimum order. For this Limited Edition Session we have a special portrait print pricing. Boutique gift items available as well. Great for birthday and Christmas gifts for grandparents and other loved ones on your list. For more information or to schedule your session call 205-982-3311.
Now for my mother’s Old Fashion Lemonade Recipe:
Old Fashion Lemonade
- 2 cups of freshly squeezed lemons (seeds removed)
- 2 cups of water
- 2 – 2 1/2 cups of sugar (I like mine sweeter)
- slices of lemon and/or fresh mint for garnish
- 2 quarts of ice in a 1 gallon wide mouth plastic container
Pour water and sugar into a 2 quart pan and bring to a soft boil, stirring constantly. (This is to make simple sugar water.) After the sugar is dissolved, add the 2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Bring back up to a soft boil and continue to stir for 1 minute. Pour over ice in plastic container, stir and add water and more ice to make one gallon. Serve in glasses over ice and garnish with fresh sliced lemons or sprigs of mint.
Makes 1 gallon of delicious lemonade.
