Grilled Lemonade

Grilled lemonade??? Sounds weird I know, but grilling the lemons gives this drink a slightly smoky and caramelized flavor – so unique and refreshing, you’ll be making it time and time again!

Pour sugar into a dish and dip each cut half of lemon into sugar to lightly coat.

Place lemons, sugar-side down onto a hot grill until charred, about 5 minutes (make sure you have the stove fan on if you do this inside).

Once cool, juice lemons and place liquid into a bowl. Pour mixture through sieve to remove pulp and needs, then pour into a large pitcher. Heat 1 cup of water with remaining sugar, stirring until dissolved. Pour into pitcher then top up with enough water until your desired sweetness is achieved.
