Fresh Squeezed Lemonade!

YUM! Perfect on hot sunny days.  I am talking good old fashioned lemonade...not powdery mix from a can...water, sugar & lemons....over ice of refreshing & relaxing!!!

Here is the recipe I use, not too tart, not too sweet...just right:


8 cups water
3/4 cup - 1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice {6-8 lemons)

In small saucepan combine 1c water & the sugar, heat until sugar is totally dissolved {simple syrup}.  Remove from heat and cool in refrigerator until chilled.  Combine remaining 7c water & lemon juice & simple syrup.  Serve over ice & enjoy!  We have even pureed watermelon, strawberries or raspberries and added before, super yummy!
