Limonada Con Apio

Limonada Con Apio

Celery flavored lemonade is an incredibly refreshing beverage on hot, dry summer days. I served this recipe to some visiting chefs from the Culinary Institute of America, and they were quite impresed! If you don't care for celery, try substituting cucumber for an equally thirst quenching drink. And really, you only need a hint of sugar.

Celery Lemonade
2 quarts water
2 ribs fresh celery

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice

Using and electric blender, combine 1 quart of water with the celery. Puree until completely liquid. Strain through a fine mesh colander to remove any leftover fiber.Pour the puree into a pitcher, and the remaining water and ingredients. Chill, and serve over ice.

Makes 2 1/2 quarts
