Fresh Lemonade

We have a plethera of fresh lemons we picked this week that I needed to use up, so we made fresh lemonade...very refreshing!

  • 1 quart water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup FRESH lemon juice
  • **Sparkling water (NOT tonic water, like Perrier)
Mix first three ingredients together.  Fill a tall glass 2/3 to 3/4 with lemon mixture then fill with sparkling water.  

An interesting variation is to puree some fruit (raspberries, strawberries, mango, etc) with a little superfine or powdered sugar and put that in the glass before adding the lemonade and water.

** If you don't have sparkling water, add an extra cup of plain water to the pitcher.
