  • 100g (3 1/2oz) caster sugar
  • 600ml (1pt) boiling water

  • ice and lemon slices, to serve

  1. Using a potato peeler, peel the zest from the lemons, leaving as much of the white pith on the lemons as possible. Squeeze the juice from the lemons.
  2. Pour the lemon juice into a heatproof jug, add the sugar and lemon zest. Pour over the boiling water and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Leave to cool. Then strain the lemonade into a serving jug.
  4. Stir in the cranberry juice and chilled water. Sweeten with extra sugar if desired and serve in glasses with ice and a slice of lemon.
