Homemade Lemonade

•3/4 cup sugar
•3/4 cup water
•6 lemons
•5 cups cold water (may add ice cubes to measuring cup before filling with water to help the lemonade get cold faster)


1. Juice your lemons. Be sure to roll your lemons on the counter between your palm and the counter to make it easier to juice.
2. Combine 3/4 cup water and sugar and heat over medium-high heat in saucepan, until the sugar is dissolved.
3. Combine the sugar water, lemon juice and cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
4. Serve cold.

Other ideas:
Add a few sliced strawberries for easy strawberry lemonade.
Replace juice from 1 lemon with juice from 3 limes.
Add mint to sugar water as you boil. Strain it before adding lemon juice and cold water.
Yield: (5) 12-oz. glasses
Shelf life: 3-5 days
