Fresh Lemonade Recipe
The summer is quickly coming to an end, so I thought we could say goodbye to it with a proper lemonade. While we may not have been able to do much traveling or beach lounging this year, nothing was stopping us from sitting on our back porch with a cold glass of lemonade in hand. I love making fresh lemonade for myself *ahem* my family. It really does out perform instant lemonade every time! The kids even love helping out with this recipe. They even sat outside and sold this stuff at their first lemonade stand recently (lucky neighbors). They made $20 that day, and it really had me rethinking my life options.
⏱️ 10-15 mins
- 12 lemons (rolled over surface first to soften), juiced
- 3 c simple syrup*
- 6 c water
- Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Refrigerate until cold.
*Simple syrup is just made with 1 part sugar and 1 part boiling water, stirred until sugar is dissolved. I like to keep some jarred in the fridge and ready to go.
You can increase or decrease sugar as desired to adjust to your preferred level of sweetness.
