When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

Home-made Lemonade
2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 cups of water
1 (or more, depending on taste) of Simple syrup *

Pour lemon juice, simple syrup & water into a large pitcher. Stir, taste & add more syrup if needed. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes prior to serving.

* Simple Syrup: perfect for sweetening any of your summer-time drinks... lemonade, limeade, iced tea or cocktails. (I like to make a big batch & store it in the refrigerator so I always have some on hand.)

To make the simple syrup combine equal amounts of sugar & water in a sauce pan and cook over a medium-low heat. Cook slowly, occasionally stirring the pan. Cook just until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear. Pour into a glass bottle & store in the refrigerator.

xoxo, K

This brings back good memories of my mom's homemade Lemonade.

The bottled ones just don't taste as good.
