Lemonade Syrup

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by JenSmith

This is great to sweeten and add a lemony zing to tea or fruity beverages. It will keep in the fridge for up to 1 year. You can also dilute the syrup with cold water and ice to make lemonade. You can substitute the lemon juice with orange, grapefruit, lime or any other juice that suits your fancy. MMMMMM!

This is a great idea, and it makes better lemonade than I have ever bought! A lot of room in my fridge is taken up by my water filtering contraption. This way I can have cold water and cold homemade lemonade without filling the whole refrigerator. I added the sugar syrup to the lemon juice gradually, to taste, and didn't end up using all of it. Real, pure cane sugar gave it a great flabor. I like your idea of using other juices as well.
