The Perfect Lemonade Recipe
Provided by The Linen Works – for us, it’s the Best Drink Ever on a hot day…
Preparation time: 10 minutes
¾ cup of sugar
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1. Make a simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2. While the sugar is dissolving, use the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3. Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If you prefer the lemonade sweeter, add a little more sugar.
Serve with ice and sliced lemons and enjoy!
