APPLE LEMONADE

MAKES 1¼ QUARTS

Many adults have never had freshly pressed raw apple juice—if you have a juicer, using fresh organic apples will be a palate-awakening experience for your guests. If you do choose to use pasteurized juice, look for organic and unfiltered.

If you love the sharp twang of green apple, hold off on the agave nectar altogether. If you have a sweet tooth, use a sweeter apple, such as Fuji, or add agave to keep the glycemic index low.

1   quart apple juice
¾  cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
½  cup of ice
¼  cup agave (optional)
Few slices fresh lemon and/or apple (optional)

• Stir apple juice and lemon juice in a pitcher.
• Stir in agave, if desired, until dissolved.
• Add ice and stir.
• Garnish with fresh lemon and/or apple slices, if desired.

LEMON ORANGEADE
MAKES 6-8 SERVINGS

I created this drink for a summertime event hosted by a women’s group. Adding a second citrus juice and raw honey gives the traditional lemonade a modern twist. Serve this on its own or with pungent foods to balance the flavors.

1       cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
¼      cup freshly squeezed orange juice
¾      cup  honey
4       cups water
½      cup of ice
Few   slices lemon or orange (optional)
Few   leaves spearmint (optional)

•    Pour lemon juice, orange juice, and honey into a pitcher. Stir until honey dissolves, or let mixture sit on counter for a few hours until honey dissolves.
•    Add ice and stir.
•    Garnish with fresh lemon slices, orange slices, and/or spearmint leaves, if desired.

½     cup ice
Few  slices lemon (optional)
