DIRECTIONS

  • SIMPLE SYRUP.
  • 1 cup granulated sugar*.
  • 1 cup water.
  • * You can reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup, if desired.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and water. Boil for 5 minutes, without stirring. Remove from heat and let cool before using.
  • PREPARATION.
  • In a large pitcher, combine freshly-squeezed lemon juice and cold Simple Syrup.
  • Add water, lemon slices, and ice cubes; stir until well blended. Taste to make sure the lemonade is not too sweet for your taste, if so add additional cold water.
  • Refrigerate approximately 50 to 60 minutes before servings.
  • Serve in tall glasses over ice. Note: To prevent your ice from watering down your lemonade as it melts is to freeze some lemonade in your ice trays and use them to keep your drinks ice cold. It works great!
