  • 20 lemons
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 100 g white sugar
  • Ice, for serving
  • 500 ml soda water

Cooking Instructions

Halve the lemons and dip the cut side into the brown sugar. Place the lemons, cut side down, on a braai grid over medium heat coals.

Turn when the lemons are charred and almost blackened. Braai for a further 5 minutes, then place in a large bowl.

Once the lemons are cool enough to handle, squeeze the juice into a jug. Add the white sugar to the lemon juice and mix until dissolved.

Add lots of ice and top up with soda water.

TASTE's take: When life gives you lemons, make braaied lemonade. We love the rich flavour created by charring the lemons. It's easy to make once your coals are going, but handle with care as those lemons get hot! For a twist, you can add a splash of bourbon.
