“If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” We’ve all heard this, but it only works if you have enough sugar in your life. So in honor or that, here’s my favorite homemade lemonade recipe.
Lemonade made with a homemade syrup.
- 3 1/2 cup water; divided
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice this takes about 6 lemons
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ½ cup water.
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved.
In a pitcher, combine the syrup with the lemon juice and 2½ to 3 cups water.
Serve over ice.
