Country Lemonade

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. 

2. Lemonade


  • 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. 

3. Tips


  • For a twist on traditional lemonade you can add a tablespoon of rose water for a floral hint.
