4 Lemon Drinks & A Brick Oven

My husband has a dream.

And it is becoming a reality.

It is starting out as a hole in the ground...

and will become a real brick oven.

Yep, you heard right!

Must be in his Italian blood.

Gotta have a brick oven.
Throw in pizza dough.
Bake artisan breads.
Play with fire...

It's great weather outside, probably only 55 degrees. But it's a lot of work, digging that hole and he's working up a sweat. When he works outside, he likes to have a nice, cold, drink handy.

His choice of drink?

Light Lemon Drink.

He can drink it by the gallon.

You have to use PURE lemon extract.

Not the artificial kind.

It smells really good!

Then you have to have citric acid.

This adds the 'tang' into the drink.

This is naturally found in citrus fruits and it comes in a powder form. You can find it in a specialty store.

Since this is a 'Light' lemon drink, I like to use Splenda Granular.
You use it like granulated sugar, cup for cup.

If you don't want to use Splenda, you can use white granulated sugar. Just remember, it's going to have a lot of calories!

Add cold water, stir and serve over ice. Add some thinly sliced lemons for a nice twist...It truly is a light refreshing drink that tastes great on a hot day!

  1. Very cool...your own brick oven! I love it!

    I love the sound of the light lemon drink. In what type of specialty store did you buy the citric acid? Can this drink be refrigerated and saved or is it something that has to be drunk when it's made?

  2. Tami, I got the citric acid at Kitchen Kneads, which is like a Bosch Kitchen store. I am sure you can order it online as well! This drink can be refrigerated and saved.

    Citric acid can be purchased from any organic-minded, or health-conscious food store -- including Whole Foods, Earth Fare, and grocery stores like that which have bulk spice sections. Most natural medicine/herb store will also have bulk spice sections.
