Yesterday we were craving lemonade at dinner. All I had were two lemons, so after a quick google search I found the recommended proportions and decided to try it out. It ended up being so good and easy to make that I will never go back to powder mix or store bought again.
We have a little juicer that his parents handed down to us (something I never would have bought, but I love), and juicing our two lemons made 1/2 cup, so we halved the following recipe.
Perfect, fresh lemonade:
1 cup fresh lemon juice (4-5 lemons using a juicer)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3-4 cups cold water
Dissolve 1 c. sugar in 1 c. water over heat (to make simple syrup). Mix it in a pitcher with 1 c. fresh lemon juice, and add 3-4 c. cold water to dilute. Enjoy. And for fun, pour into cute glass bottles to drink from (I keep a cupboard shelf full of pretty saved ones!).
