Who knew making lemonade was so easy?! There is only one rule of thumb: Equal Parts!
Equal parts sugar, lemon juice, and water!
(Plus additional water for diluting.)
After that, you can get creative and make all sorts of yummy flavored lemonades!
Our favorite: Strawberry Peach.
1 Cup Sugar (can use 3/4 cup, or can substitute honey.)
1 Cup Water
1 Cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (6 to 8 lemons)
2 Fresh Peaches, juiced.
2 Handfuls Fresh Strawberries, juiced.
3 to 4 Cups cold water.
Heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan on the stove until sugar is dissolved. This makes the syrup for the lemonade.
Juice the fruit.
Pour hot sugar water into a pitcher and then add the fruit juice. Stir in 3 to 4 cups of cold water, to taste. I like to add 3 cups of water so I can serve the lemonade over ice and not risk it losing any flavor. Allow to chill before serving. If you think you have added too much water, simply add more lemon juice to revive the tartness.
