My Homeade Lemonade











Perfect Lemonade Recipe


Just the word 'lemonade' brings back happy childhood memories of  lazy, summer days. 
This old fashioned, homemade lemonade recipe is one of the easiest I've made and
 one of the best I've tasted!

Recipe


  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6.

Ingredients


  • 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)

Method

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, sliced lemons.
