This is by no means low calorie but we have never made homemade lemonade before and we have tons of lemons so we thought we should give it a try.
I am glad we did!
Best Ever Lemonade
recipe adapted from Random Thoughts of a Supermom
1 3/4 cup sugar
7 1/2 cups water
2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice*
1. In a small sauce pan combine sugar with one cup water and bring to a boil.
Sugar will dissolve.
Allow to cool to room temperature and then put in the fridge until ready to use.
2. Meanwhile, squeeze lemon juice out of the lemons.
We used 8 lemons.
After squeezing the juice out, run juice through a strainer to get out all the seeds that snuck by!
3. Combine lemon juice, sugar mixture, and remaining 6 1/2 cups water.
Stir and serve over ice.
*The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup more water, 1/2 cup less lemon juice
but I like my lemonade just a little sour!
