Yesterday I found myself craving some ice cold lemonade. I was going to just go buy some at the store but most of them are loaded with more sugar than lemons! I decided to try to make my own so I looked up some recipes online and realized it is quite a simple task. It was pretty fun too. Here is the recipe I used:
- 3/4 cup Raw Sugar
- 1 cup water (for syrup)
- 1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
- 4 cups cold water
- Use 4-6 lemons to juice 1 cup of lemon.
- Heat 1 cup of water with the raw sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves.
- Add heated sugar water and lemon juice to pitcher along with 4 cups of cold water (more or less depending on the strength you perfer) Refrigeate and Serve!
I was pleasently surprised at the outcome. The lemonade was fantastic and I love how the raw sugar gives it a unique taste. (It also gives it a slightly darker color) I think I will be making lemonade a lot more often :)
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
P.S. Thus far in my wifey cooking career my favorite ingredients to cook with are: Fresh garlic, Garlic salt, Pepper, and Lemon.
