SUMMER IS COMING! and lemonade makes me just itch for some summer sun, lake, sports, friends, activities, and freedom!
<if you can’t tell i’m experiencing a little bit of summer fever.>
so i thought i would share a fabulous lemonade recipe with you.
- 1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
- 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice and sliced lemons!
ENJOY SOME TASTY LEMONADE WHILE YOU WAIT FOR THAT LAST CLASS BELL TO RING!
