Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2l (4 pints) water
  • 3 lemons
  • 1 orange
  • 25g (1 oz) citric acid
  • 1kg (2 lb) vegan sugar


Place water, citric acid and vegan sugar in a saucepan and bring to the
boil. Add rind of the lemons and orange and simmer for five minutes.
Add the juice of the lemons and orange. Bring back to the boil,
strain and bottle immediately in sterile bottles.

This produces a syrup that can be diluted with water (carbonated or
not, hot or cold) to produce a very pleasant lemon drink. The use of
the rind ensures that that the lemon taste is more balanced that juice
only recipes. It is quite concentrated and goes quite a long way. It
should keep indefinitely in sealed sterile bottles, but I have never
managed to keep any more than a few weeks before drinking it.
