Day #1-When Life Hands You Lemons Make Lemonade!
The Lemonade  

The lemonade is the fun part  and it is YUMMY! I LOVE good maple syrup, even though it is too pricey, cayenne pepper is always awesome and of course who doesn't love refreshing lemons?

Altogether it makes a yummy drink that taste better than bottled juices.

I have posted the recipe for it here    and I usually make half gallon at a time with three lemons, 1/2 cup of syrup and as much red pepper to wake up the sinuses.

Of course the basic principle behind the lemonade is that it's the detox aide. The lemons are an astringent, the syrup gives you calories and sugars to sustain, and the cayenne loosens and helps remove mucus.

If you are trying to hand squeeze your lemons you are going to have a hard time of it. I use a citrus juicer, the one I like the most is the Presto Lemonade Maker

I like it because it has a nice half gallon base that has an extra lid to store in the fridge. I have looked around the web and it appears that it is not available for sale in most of the well known sites such as Amazon.com. But there are other citrus juicers out there to help with the lemon juicing.
