Lemon Shake-Ups. You’ve had them at the county fair, the rodeo, the fall festival, the circus, and the carnival, but have you had them at home? They are easy and deliciously refreshing during the summer.
Start with two cleaned quart-sized Mason jars. Fill them with one whole tray of ice cubes.
Each jar needs four lemons (or a mixture of lemons and limes), so slice two in half.
Squeeze the lemons into the Mason Jars, then drop them right in.
Spoon in some wonderfully-refined-tastes-divine white sugar. Two scoops worked for me.
Fill the Mason Jars 3/4 of the way full, then screw on the lid.
Now give the Mason jar a shake, shake, shake-shake. I mean shake it a-baby. Feel free to twist and shout.
I tried to punch a straw-hole in the lid with a paper punch, but I just wasn’t strong enough.
Serve with a straw. These are a bit addicting. We had them daily during the hot month of August. They also travel well to baseball games and picnics. Drink responsibly.

Those sound yummy! What’s summer (or any month for that matter) without lemon and lime? Not sure I could live without them for long …. and we’re huge fans of Cuppow’s over here, the drink topper for mason jars … they have wide mouth and regular. http://www.cuppow.com/
