Summertime is Lemonade Time!

What's better on a hot, summer day than a cold glass of lemonade?   Yes, homemade lemonade.

It's so easy to make and is so delicious!  All you need is three ingredients which are:

Lemon Juice -  6 to 8 lemons
1 Cup Water
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Cold Water - 3 to 4 cups

I first dissolve the sugar in 1 cup water and cook over stove on low heat until sugar dissolves.  This makes a simple syrup.  Then I add the squeezed lemon juice to the simple syrup.

The last step is to add another 3-4 cups cold water and stir.

Well now it is time for me to enjoy a nice, cold mason jar filled with the perfect lemonade in my backyard!

I even have some extra lemonade with a pretty straw, would you like some?

Hope you are enjoying your day, too!
