There are 3 seasons, according to the Imaginative One – lemonade season, hot chocolate season, and apple cider season. His favorite drink to have depends on what season it is. Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s back to lemonade season once again. Tonight as I was getting dinner ready, he was asking me questions about lemons and if he could have one of them. I kept trying to find out what he was up to because it could not have been good.
I noticed a tab on the computer that said something about perfect lemonade. He was trying to find the perfect ratio of lemon juice to water to make lemonade. The recipe called for making simple syrup. I did not want him attempting to make that, and I was also using most of the stovetop. So he just added sugar to the finished product to make it sweeter.

Stars of the recipe:

- Combine the lemon juice and water in a cup.
- Add the sweetener. Stir until dissolved.
- Enjoy over ice!
Makes enough for one person.
