1 c. water
1 c. sugar
6 lemons

Make a simple syrup by combining 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir frequently until sugar dissolves completely. Pour into glass container. (You can store this in the refrigerator for at least a week.)

To make a full pitcher of lemonade:

Mix one full recipe of simple syrup in a pitcher with the juice of six lemons (I like it pulpy, but you can strain it). Add four cups cold water and mix well. Sometimes I use an equal amount of chilled sparkling water in place of the cold water to add a festive fizz.

Serve in clear glasses with plenty of ice and slices of lemon

This is my recipe! Almost *exact* The ONLY difference is, my recipe didn't specify how much water & sugar for the 'sugar syrup' - mine just says to make it using equal parts & then take 1/4 - 1/2 C of the syrup to add to make the lemonade.

Great idea for the sparkling water for a different touch.
Great recipe!
