There's nothing more refreshing than a glass of lemonade. It's so incredibly easy to make, that it almost seems crazy that we buy it. Once you get the basics down, you can start experimenting with infusing mint, berries, and tea; you can even add club soda for a nice sparkling lemonade, if you want to get fancy. We've been seriously craving lemonade for the last few days, so we finally made some!
What You'll Need
6-9 Fresh Lemons
1 cup Simple Syrup
6 cups cold water
Start by making your simple syrup. Combine 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of water to a pot. Bring to a boil, and continue to boil for five minutes. Once finished, pour syrup into a glass cup (or measuring cup), and place it into the refrigerator to cool.
Cut lemons in half, and squeeze the juice into a cup. If you are using a juicer (like we did), remove all the lemon peels, and cut the lemon into quarters before feeding through your machine.
Next, combine your lemon juice, water, and simple syrup into a pitcher, and stir. Place pitcher in the refrigerator to chill.
Serve over ice.
