Simple and Perfect Lemonade
This lemonade will certainly live up to it's name- perfect. It is the best drink on a hot summer day!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cup water for simple syrup
- 1 cup granulated syrup
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
Add water and sugar to a saucepan. It is best if this is a thick-bottomed saucepan. Turn heat to medium and mix well. Allow to heat until sugar is dissolved. Mine took about 5 minutes or so, this will depend on the temp of your cooktop. Once the sugar is dissolved, remove it from heat and allow it to cool.
Once it has cooled slightly, we can begin
Add your simple syrup, lemon, juice, and 1 quart of water to a pitcher. Mix it well and taste. If you like, add in more water. This will depend on how strong your lemons are and what your tastes are like.
Last in is the ice. I love a well-chilled lemonade!
