  • Old Fashioned Lemonade 

    • Old Fashioned Lemonade 
    • 2 cups  Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed, from about 8 - 10 lemons) 
      1 ½ cups  White Sugar 
      2 ½ tablespoons  Lemon Zest (2-3 lemons) 
      8 cups  Cold Water (to dilute) 
    • Lemon syrup 
    • Add 1 cup of the lemon juice into a saucepan, along with 1 ½ cup of sugar and the zest. Heat the two ingredients together on medium-high heat, while stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved. Continue to heat the lemon syrup until the lemon syrup starts to simmer. 
    • Set the saucepan aside and allow the syrup to cool down to room temperature. 
    • Stir in the rest of the ½ cup of lemon juice. 
    • Strain the lemon syrup to remove the zest. 
    • Allow the syrup to chill in the fridge until needed. 
    • To make the Lemonade 
    • Mix the lemon syrup with about 6 cups of chilled water at first then stir to combine. Add the extra 2 cups of water if you want to dilute the lemonade further (to your taste). Pour the lemonade into a pitcher with additional lemon slices.  
    • Taste and add more fresh lemon juice or water if needed. Serve immediately or store in the fridge until needed.
