Is there anything more refreshing than a glass of fresh Lemonade on a hot summer day? My children are always asking me to pick up lemons so they can make lemonade. After seeing what is added to a purchased lemonade in preservatives and flavorings and dyes, I prefer to know what is in this simple enough to make beverage.
- 6 large fresh lemons, squeezed (yields approximately 1 cup lemon juice)
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 cups water
Squeeze the lemons of their juice to make one cup of lemon juice. Add 1 cup sugar and 6 cups of water. Stir. Chill or add ice cubes and enjoy immediately!
