Braaied Lemonade



  • 10 lemons
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 100 g white sugar
  • Ice, for serving
  • 500 ml soda water

Cooking Instructions:

  • Halve the lemons and dip the cut side into the brown sugar. Place the lemons, cut side down, on a braai grid over medium heat coals.
  • Turn when the lemons are charred and almost blackened. Braai for a further 5 minutes, then place in a large bowl.
  • Once the lemons are cool enough to handle, squeeze the juice into a jug. Add the white sugar to the lemon juice and mix until dissolved.
  • Add lots of ice and top up with soda water.  For a twist, you can add a splash of bourbon.

See below the delicious, quick and easy campfire dessert in a mug:
  • An enamel coffee mug/ metal cup/ clean tin can (to put on top of the braai)
  • A packet of Marie biscuits/Digestive biscuits
  • A packet of marshmallows
  • Caramel treat (you could use bar one/mars bar instead of buying a tin of caramel treat)
  • A chocolate of your choice
  • Custard
Cooking Instructions:
  • Crumble one or two Marie Biscuits or Digestive Cookies into a metal cup or enamel coffee mug.
  • Add one or two Marshmallows (one white & one pink), add a few spoons of caramel treat, sprinkle on a few chunks of chocolate bar and top with Custard.
  • When the coals of your fire are on their last legs, put the cups on a very low heat under a suitable lid like a Weber lid or a box that has been lined with tin foil.
  • Leave the cups under the lid for about 5 minutes or until the marshmallows have turned mushy and the chunks of Chocolate have melted.
  • Remove the cups from the fire with a glove, dishcloth or paper napkin and enjoy by scoffing it down with a HUGE spoon!
