Homemade Lemonade Recipe
Home Made Lemonade
Lemonade is a symbol of summer I think. When I think of lemonade, I think of hot days outside, the glass of cold lemonade sweating.
I was working on the kids lemonade stand post when I did a google search. I found this recipe for home made lemonade and the picture looked so good.
Don’t you love the lemon shake ups you get at the fairs in the summer? Water, Ice, Lemon and sugar. Shake it up and your good to go. Bees are always buzzing all over those trailers with the lemon shake ups aren’t they? Can you tell I’m getting the visual?
As easy as this is, if I make “real” lemonade, it is from the frozen concentrate can like mom used to buy, instead of the powder mix. This would also be a good activity for the kids to do during the summer. Make home made lemonade. Wonder if they advertised it that way, if they would make any more money. (giggles)
I am getting all these great ideas on easy things to make this summer. I’m all for the easy folks. Especially when it comes to preparing food.
1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
