Lemonade sounded good for some reason today, so I picked up some lemons and made some fresh lemonade.
How I made it:
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan, heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Juice 4 to 6 lemons to get 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. Strain out seeds.
Combine simple syrup, 1 cup lemon juice and 3 to 4 cups chilled water. Add ice and lemon slices if desired. If this is not tart enough for you, adjust it by adding more lemon juice.
