Old Fashioned Lemonade

I love, love, love an ice cold glass of lemonade. Most of the stuff you buy is just too sweet for me. So of course I created my own recipe. None of the extra crap in it, just lemon’s, sugar, and wter! This is best made the night before. Pouring it warm over ice really dilutes the flavor!

Old Fashioned Lemonade Recipe:

Lemonade Recipe
Ingredients:
6 lemons (room temperature lemons provide more juice)
1 cup sugar (mine wasn’t quite full)
About 2 quarts of water
1 lemon sliced for garnish

Directions:
Place about 3 cups of water and the sugar in a pan on high heat. Zest the peel from one lemon into the water (I use a fine grater and just grate the lemon’s yellow color off). Boil until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Lemon zest and sugar water
Juice the lemon that you got the zest off and juice the remaining lemons (not the one for garnish though silly). I cut mine in half and pick out most of the seeds using a fork. Hold the fork in the middle of the lemon and squeeze as shown below.

Pour the lemon juice and the sugar water into a 2 quart pitcher. Fill the rest of the pitcher with water. Chill for a few hours. Pour over ice, top with a slice of lemon and ENJOY!
