If you haven’t spent an afternoon sipping fresh-squeezed lemonade yet this summer, may I gently and lovingly suggest you do so? It’s a truly wonderful way to enjoy the warm weather. Lemonade plus a good book and a comfy chair on the porch. So nice.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4-6 lemons)
4-5 cups water
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 1 cup of water. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil stir until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool to room temperature, and chill in refrigerator. In a pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining water. Serve with ice, sliced lemons, or blended with crushed ice. Makes 6 servings.
