In She Makes It Look Easy, Justine insists on making fresh squeezed lemonade while Ariel just resorts to Country Time powder. Recently I decided to make fresh squeezed lemonade to see if I could. I have to say it was easy, and SO good! I thought I'd share the recipe I used in case you wanted to give it a whirl. Or a squeeze.
1. Juice the lemons. I used about 6 to get a cup of juice.
2. Mix 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a microwave safe dish. Nuke until the sugar is dissolved. (I started out with one minute and just added to it, checking often.)
3. Mix the lemon juice and sugar water mixture (simple syrup) in a pitcher. Add about 3 cups of water and ice. Refrigerate until chilled through.
