Lemonade Recipe!

When life gives you lemons….

Make Lemonade!!

I love the taste of fresh lemonade. I makes me feel like it’s summer all year long! I have a recipe for the most delicious lemonade! The secret is a simple syrup.

Here’s the recipe:

1 -3/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
8 cups water

Start by adding the sugar and 1 cup of the water and bring to a boil over med-high heat. keep stirring until the sugar dissolves. (Liquid will turn clear) Remove from heat, bring to room temperature, then refrigerate until cold.

When the simple syrup is chilled, add the lemon juice and the remaining 7 cups of water. Mix well and serve over ice!
