Camping, when you’re lucky, can be hot work. Even here in the UK you could be hit with a day out of the blue when something refreshing is needed post-tent raising and pre-fire lighting. And this is it. Strangely though, over here it seems as well known as a beach extra from the first episode of Neighbours. It deserves a whole lot more attention I can assure you, and is much loved by us Aussies.
Here’s the what:
Lemonade (I like to pack a couple of cases of 150ml cans of Schweppes. There are 12 little cans in each case)
Ice (I have a Coleman Xtreme cooler which keeps ice for five days)
Here’s the how:
Over ice, pour in lime cordial (as much as you would if you were mixing with water, so not too much that it’s over-powering). Add a slice or two of fresh lime if you have any to hand. Add four to five splashes of Angostura Bitters, then pour in a 150ml can of Lemonade. Stir with a straw.
Grab a little helper to hand them around, cos you’ll be busy making more for anyone who catches sight of one!
