Our daily walks along the Rio Mulege had many advantages. We met new friends, frolicked with energetic dogs, and found many discarded treasures (shells, tiles, and even a phone). The other day as we walked back home along the river we came across a huge box of lemons perched on a wall. The box had a large FREE sign attached and so we each took an armfull and headed home to make lemonade.
We have never tried our hand at fresh squeezed lemonade, so Five of Hearts turned to the Internet where she found us a super tasty recipe from Simply Recipes . We loved how easy this recipe was to adapt to personal taste ( we added a bit more lemon juice to our batch). The Younger Fives loved that they could make this refreshing drink pretty much all by themselves. They just needed help lighting the stove for dissolving the sugar. The best part in their opinion was using our amazingly awesome juice squeezer. The squeezer, made by chef’n, was a gift from Nana Five a few years ago. It is so easy to use and honestly gets every drop of juice out of the fruit.
While letting the lemonade chill we worked on packing our bags for our departure to La Paz. Then we all sat back and enjoyed a wonderfully refreshing drink while reminicing about our time spent in Mulege. While we are excited to move into our new rental house we will always fondly remember our time in Mulege and our walks along the river.
