The Little Empress Is Wearing Pink - It must Be Saturday! Time for Pink Lemonade



Isn't she a doll? What you can't see is, that while she's held by her mother, both sets of grandparent's are hovering around her brand new English pram. Under China's one child policy she'll probably be very spoiled - a little empress. I hope she brings a smile to your faces. She does to mine. Have a wonderful weekend.

Pink Lemonade...recipe courtesy of Martha Stewart

Ingredients:
1 cup granulated sugar
2-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice, plus 4 lemons, thinly sliced crosswise, for garnish
1-1/2 cups superfine sugar
2 cups cranberry juice

Directions:
1) Bring granulated sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium pan over high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
2) Add lemon juice, superfine sugar, cranberry juice, and 1-1/2 quarts water to a serving container. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 1 day.
3) To serve, add ice cubes to fill and garnish with lemon slices. Yield: 3 quarts.
