Home-made Lemonade

Making your own, refreshing lemonade couldn't be easier! This recipe is so easy to make, you'll wonder why you've never tried it before. The trick here is to make a simple syrup first so that all the sugar is dissolved completely. The rest - easy peasy!

This is the fourth post in my Drinks Series.



 Home-made Lemonade
Serves 6 - 8

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar (or less if you like it less sweet)
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 - 4 cups of cold water to dilute syrup (or to taste)
Method:
  1. Heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan until sugar is completely dissolved. (I do this in the microwave oven.)
  2. Squeeze the juice from about 6 to 8 lemons, enough to make one cup. Strain the juice through a fine sieve into the syrup and stir.
  3. Add the 3 to 4 cups of cold water to a jug. Add the lemon syrup and mix well. Refrigerate for 30 to 40 minutes until well chilled. Serve with lots of ice and a slice of lemon.
