If I could write a clever segway to this lemonade recipe I would. But you get it, summer = lemonade. So there we go. This recipe is awesome and fun to make!
1 and 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup hot water
6 cups cold water
1 lemon for garnish
After juicing the lemons and straining out the pulp and seeds, combine 1 cup of hot water with 1 cup of sugar and stir until dissolved. This makes a simple syrup and prevents having grains of sugar at the bottom of the pitcher. Combine 6 cups water with the simple syrup and lemon juice mixture into a pitcher and stir. Slice the lemon into rounds and mix into lemonade for extra prettiness.
Yum! I hope you make this and enjoy the rest of summer!
