(These are some old photos from when we made lemonade the first time.)
Step 1: Make a simple syrup. Combine 1 cup sugar (we used raw, organic) and 1 cup water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and mix. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
Step 2: Juice 6 large lemons, or enough to make 1 cup of juice.
Step 3: Once the syrup is cool, combine with the lemon juice in a large pitcher. Add 4 cups of cold water (add more water if you like, until it reaches your taste preference). Add ice and lemon slices, and enjoy!
*For an extra zip, zest some of the lemon peels and add to the juice!
