It's not as yellow and strong as the store bought stuff, but it tastes fresh and it's totally natural.

Directions

  1. Dissolve the 2 cups of sugar into the boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved and it makes a syrup.
  2. Chill the syrup until room temperature.
  3. To your syrup add 3 cups of fresh or bottled lemon juice and your cold water. Mix or shake in a container and Ta Dah! It's that easy.
  4. The simple syrup alone can be stored and used to sweeten all sorts of non and alcoholic beverages.
  5. For margarita mix substitute 1 of your cups of lemon juice for lime juice.
