Old Fashioned Fresh Lemonade
So easy! And much better for you than store-bought!
1 1/2 cups of Sugar
5 to 7 Lemons, enough to make a cup of lemon juice
1. The first thing to making Fresh Lemonade is making a simple syrup/sugar. In a sauce pan over medium heat place 1 1/2 cups water and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat to cool.
2. Next you need the juice of about 5 to 7 lemons. Enough to make a cup.
3. After you have your lemons juiced. Then you need to add the one cup of lemon juice to 1 cup of simple sugar.
4. I then like to start by adding 4 cups of cold water. Stir and then taste. If it needs more simple sugar mixture add it. More water, add it in.
5. Chill in the fridge.
Serve Cold! Great for summer and so simple to make!
I am so tired of the cold weather (I never thought I would say that, since Winter is one of my favorite seasons). I am so looking forward to spring, summer and Strawberries!
