• 1 c. water
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 6 lemons
  1. 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.)
  2. To make a full pitcher of lemonade:
  3. 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.
  4. Serve in clear glasses with plenty of ice and slices of lemon
