Easy Homemade Lemonade

Yield: 1/2 Gallon or 8 – 8 oz glasses

Lemonade is a staple beverage for any summer. Enjoy this easy homemade lemonade that refreshes with every sip!

Ingredients
1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
7 cups water (6 cups + additional 1 cup)
3/4 cup sugar

Directions:

Before you squeeze the lemons, you’ll want to create the simple syrup that will sweeten the lemonade.

Combine one cup of water with 3/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Stir the water and sugar together until you notice the sugar starting to dissolve in the warm water.

You don’t have to bring the water to a boil for the sugar to dissolve.

Continue stirring until most of the sugar dissolves, then remove from the heat and set aside.

Now, you can begin juicing the lemons until you measure one full cup.
