Ingredients

  • 150g carrots, grated
  • juice 5 lemons
  • juice 1 orange
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • ice
  • sparkling water

Method

  1. In a bowl, stir together the carrot, lemon juice, orange juice and sugar. Steep in the fridge for at least 1 hr, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a large jug to get rid of the pulp.

  2. To make the lemonade, pour 25ml-50ml (depending on how sweet you like it) of the carrot mixture into each glass, add some ice then top with 200ml sparkling water.
