When life gives you lemons…

Come on, do I really need to finish this sentence?

Simple Lemonade (makes 6 cups)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lemon juice (4-5 lemons)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 4 cups cold water
  • ice cubes
  • lemon slices for garnish (optional)

Directions:

1) Squeeze enough lemon juice to equal approx. 1 cup. Pour into a pitcher.

2) Dissolve 3/4 cup sugar into 1 cup of hot water. Use 1 cup of sugar if preferred. I never know how sour or sweet my lemons are at first, so I start with 3/4 cup and work my way up if needed. Pour into pitcher.

3) Add 4 cups cold water, ice cubes and lemon slices for garnish. Serve yourself a glass of summer!
