- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- Juice from 6-8 lemons
- 4 cups cold water
- Mint sprigs
Let’s take it up a notch!! Add 2-3 oz of white rum or Vodka to your glass before filling with lemonade…………
Blend 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar well in small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool and refrigerate. (This is the simple syrup.)Mix the simple syrup well with the juice from 4-6 lemons (strained or not, as you like) and stir well. Add 4 cups cold water and mix. Try using sparkling water for some fizz! Pour into thermos or large jug, adding thin lemon slices if you’d like, or garnish with mint sprigs.I like to make more lemonade and freeze it in ice cube trays, adding the cubes to the lemonade so it’s never diluted as the ‘ice’ melts.(This right here is a fantastic IDEA!!)
You can increase the amounts of this recipe proportionately, depending on the amount of lemonade you want.
