Ah, nothing says "Summer's Here" quite like a cold glass of lemonade. Here is how we make the perfect cool drink for a hot summer day.
1. Simple Syrup Base
- 1 Cup Water
- 3/4 Cup of Sugar
In a small sauce pan heat water and sugar mix until the sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally.
- 1 Cup Lemon Juice ( From Juice of 5-7 Lemons)
- 3-4 Cups of Cold Water
While waiting for the syrup, juice 5-7 lemons for one cup of juice. Once completely dissolved, add syrup to a glass pitcher, stirring lemon juice and adding water one cup at a time until desired taste. Use 3 cups for sweeter lemonade or 4 cups for a more balanced, classic lemonade.
- For a twist on traditional lemonade you can add a tablespoon of rose water for a floral hint.
