Super Simple Lemonade (or Lemon Drop!)
But, I wanted to make a cheesecake and this cheesecake has some pretty specific baking instructions. Temperatures change partway through, the cake sleeps in the oven overnight. It's a process. And it makes the most delicious cheesecake you'll ever eat!
LEMONADE/LEMON DROP (on the rocks)*
3 lemons, cut into wedges
1 c. sugar
1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine lemons and sugar. With a muddler or pestle, smash up all the lemons, getting as much juice out as possible.
2. Strain into pitcher (makes about 1.5 quarts). Add cold water (and ice) to fill container.
3. Rub a lemon wedge around the edge of glass, dip in fine sugar. Fill glass with ice. Pour lemonade over the top and garnish with a thin slice of lemon.
*For the Lemon Drop, omit the water. In each glass pour 1/2 oz. vodka over ice then top with strained lemon juice/sugar mixture.
