This is going to be my second of three specialty drinks we are going to be serving at our fundraiser this weekend. Another drink with a Danish twist, the first being a Rhubarb Berry Smoothie. Next up we have Limonade med Æg, Danish for Egg Lemonade.
What I loved about this drink that made it stand out above my other "experiments" this week, was that it had a bit of a fizz like a soft drink, and a light sweetness to it. The lemon syrup base also makes it not bitter like some of the store bought lemonades.
Oh my! -- Poor little naked lemon. It's outerwear has all been grated off.
The Shopping List:
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 cups water
- 1 lemon rind -- grated
- 4 lemons, juiced
- 1/4 cup egg beaters
- 1 quart club soda
Another nice and simple recipe. Add the water and sugar into a pot and bring to boil. Stir occasionally to mix in the sugar that settles at the bottom. Once the sugar dissolves, add in the grated lemon rind and lemon juice. Give it a quick stir and remove from heat. Add the egg beater and whisk thoroughly. Store in a juice container and put in the fridge to chill.
Before serving, give the lemon syrup with egg a quick mix and add in the club soda and give it another stir. Serve over ice.
The best part is the egg beaters will give you a little foam on top. Delish!
