Homemade Lemonade

It’s easy to make homemade lemonade. All you need is sugar, fresh lemons and some water.

Enjoy fresh lemonade as a nonalcoholic drink, or use as a mixer to make vodka lemonade or a summer beer shandy.

Homemade Lemonade Recipe
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3 cups fresh cold water
Ice cubes
Lemon slices

Start by making simple syrup. Add sugar and 1/2 cup water to small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.

To make lemonade, in a pitcher combine simple syrup, lemon juice and 3 cups fresh cold water; mix well. (Taste for sweetness. Add additional water if you prefer a less sweet lemonade.) Refrigerate until serving. Serve over ice and garnish with lemon slices.

Makes about 4 cups

Tip: To make an Arnold Palmer combine equal parts lemonade and iced tea. Black tea is the usual addition, but you can also use herbal, white or green iced tea.
