The first couple of days I only had water to drink. I needed something else! I don't like chicory and I'm not big on mint tea (I usually just drink it if I have an upset stomach).
Desperate times call for desperate measures so I had light peach syrup one evening with dinner! I think mom said that she drank the bread and butter pickle juice as a beverage (or something like that).
A few days ago, before work I had the idea to make raspberry lemonade. I combined frozen squeezed lemon, water, raspberry sauce (sweetened with maple sugar) and chipped away at the maple sugar. I had to give up on the maple sugar because I cut my finger while chipping away at it so it was a little sour.
Today I used up the remaining small amount of thawed lemon and raspberry sauce. This time I heated the maple sugar in water to melt it to create a syrup. I added a little syrup and water and it was much better. I still have 2 lemons and a package of raspberries in the freezer in case I decide to make this again.
I also made grape juice from raisins (I will drink this with breakfast tomorrow). I soaked the raisins (they were soaking due to a cooking experiment gone wrong), then added a little more water and boiled it. I strained the raisins and added maple syrup to the liquid. It tastes ok - but the grapes are not my favorite flavor.
