Lemonade is so good on a hot summer day and we love this version. It takes quite a few lemons (don’t sub the stuff in a bottle ~ use fresh lemons) but it’s well worth it!
1 3/4 cups sugar
8 cups water
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
In a saucepan, mix 1 cup water and sugar together. Bring to a boil and boil until the sugar is dissolved. Cool syrup to room temperature than refrigerate until it is chilled.
Remove seeds from lemon juice but keep the pulp.
In a pitcher, stir together the chilled syrup, lemon juice and the 7 cups of water. Mix well. Add lemon slices and ice if desired.
Makes 12 or so servings (or more if you are using small cups). This is really a guess, you’ll have to judge for yourself.
