Simple Homemade Lemonade Recipe
Ideas to customize your lemonade
- 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice Approx. 6 lemons
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 to 6 cups cold water
Prepare simple syrup using 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar.
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring the water and sugar to a boil, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. Allow simple syrup to cool, and then refrigerate.
**If you don't have time to cool the simple syrup just combine sugar and water in a clean jar with a lid and shake until the sugar is dissolved.
Juice the lemons (you want about 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice). You can strain the juice if you would like pulp-free lemonade. Combine lemon juice and simple syrup then dilute with cold water until the desired flavor is reached, generally at about 4 to 6 cups cold water.
You can adjust the proportions of lemon juice to simple syrup to change the sweetness or tartness of the lemonade depending on what you like.
If you really want to jazz up your lemonade for your picnic, crush fresh strawberries in the lemonade for a delicious strawberry-lemonade swirl. Or use sparkling water in place of regular tap water.
