Summer Lemonade, Part II (4th of July-sized!)

I made this lemonade over a year ago, but when I made it I split the recipe so that it would yield less. This time, I used the actual proportions the recipe calls for. Here they are:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups cold water

Here are the directions again:

Heat the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely. Extract the juice from 4-6 lemons to make 1 up of juice.

Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water (I used 4). Refrigerate 40 minutes. 


Happy Fourth of July!
