The Best Lemonade You Will Ever Have!
There is nothing better on a hot summer day in my opinion than a tall glass of cool lemonade!
My cousin and I used to have a lemonade stand in front of our houses in the summer. Sure, you can go buy the premade stuff at the store, but why not make it at home?
Here is a recipe and a few tips from Food 52 on how to make the best lemonade you will ever have!
10 – 12 medium lemons (preferably organic), scrubbed well
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar (Sugar in the Raw is better/more coarse)
pinch table salt (optional)
5 cups water (cold)
Rub the outside of the lemons with the sugar and set sugar aside. Juice lemons draining off as much pulp as you can. Bring water to a boil and add to sugar (and salt, if using) in large, deep bowl or saucepan. Add simple syrup to squeezed lemon juice and stir until well combined. Chill well and stir to blend before serving, over ice if desired.
