'Tis the Season for a Picnic - Mason Jar Drinks

This is the most fabulous idea in my opinion! It would be great with lemonade, ice tea or water with lemon in them. The supplies are easy: mason jars and drinks. If you want to get super crafty, buy some chalk paint and paint a square on the side of the mason jar.  Pick up some sidewalk chalk at the dollar store and viola! you are ready to go!

Homemade Lemonade

7 large lemons
1 cup sugar
2 quarts cold water

Slice 6 lemons in half and squeeze each of them into a large measuring cup.  This should yield about 1-1/2 cups of juice.  Remove any seeds.

In a large pitcher, combine the juice and the sugar.  Stir in 2 quarts of cold water.  Slice the extra lemon and float in lemonade.

Sweet Tea

2 quarts water
1 big tea bag OR 2 small tea bags PER quart
3/4 cup sugar

Bring water to a boil.  Pull water off heat and put in tea bags.  Let steep for 5 minutes.  Take out tea bags.  Put in sugar and stir.  Let cool before putting into mason jars.
