Lemonade is commonly known as a Summer time drink but in my house we enjoy it all year long. It’s a great way to get your family to drink plenty of water and lemons are great source of vitamin c. So whip up this cool and refreshing drink with this easy to follow recipe and start reaping the health benefits now.
What you will need to make this recipe:
1 Large lemon or about 5 ounces of juice from small ones
3/4 cup of sugar
2 qts water
a pot for boiling
spoon for stirring
Ice cubes to cool down the mix before placing in pitcher
Add sugar and about 1 cup of water into a pot and boil. Stirring to make sure sugar doesn’t crystallize. You will notice the sugar dissipating as it boils. When you can no longer see the sugar, take off of stove.
I like to add ice cubes to the boiled water sugar mix to cool it down before adding it to the pitcher. Add the rest of the water and mixture to the pitcher.
Squeeze lemons until you have about 5 ounces of juice. Add to the pitcher.
Stir everything together and serve over ice.
