I know, I know I've been a little lemon-centric lately. What can I say? I dig 'em.
The other day I thought it'd be fun to squeeze some lemons to make Fresh Lemonade.
I knew the basic idea behind lemonade. Lemons + Sugar + water = lemonade...but I wanted to make sure I had the right measurements.
So I checked my favorite cookbook (read: checked google) and found this simple yummy recipe from Simple Recipes. Go there for the printable recipe.
Here's what I did. Cut up 6 Lemons.
Dissolved 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water together over the stove. Once it was all dissolved I poured it into my pitcher. (This is done so you don't have a bunch of sugar laying at the bottom of the pitcher.)
Squeezed 6 lemons to make 1 cup of lemon juice.
Poured my lemon juice into the pitcher and mixed with 4 1/2 cups of cold water. That's it!
Growing up it seemed a very common Saturday night dinner was Tacos. I have happy memories of eating them with fresh ingredients and lemonade. To this day I can hardly have tacos without complimenting it with sweet lemonade.
