Lemonade: sugar, water, lemon juice. Easy, right?
Well, the problem is that if you just stir all of these together the sugar will sink to the bottom.so I thought ill show you how to make the perfect lemonade.
1 cup of sugar
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice
2 to 3 cups cold water (to dilute)
But the proportions will vary depending on how sweet and strong you like your lemonade, and how sour your lemons are to begin with.
1.Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Stir so that the sugar dissolves completely and remove from heat.
2.While the water and sugar is heating , juice your lemons. Depending on the size of the lemons, 4 to 6 of them should be enough for one cup of juice.
3.Pour the juice and the sugar water into a serving pitcher. Add 2 to 3 cups of cold water and taste. Add more water if you would like it to be more diluted (though note that when you add ice, it will melt and naturally dilute the lemonade). If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more lemon juice.
As a little tuch you could add a ribbon or a bow to the glasses your drinking from. (I find this would be cute if your making the lemonade for a party)
