What you do when your year turns out to be a lemon?

As 2020 turned out to be a proverbial lemon, I decided as the saying goes to make the most of it. Refreshing as an addition to your summer lemonade or as an ‘amuse bouche’ but I like it on its own as a light dessert after a meal, cleans and refreshes the palette. This dessert has no enemies and as I have a picky lot to entertain is broad and inclusive as it contains no, nuts, dairy etc.
