Lemonade is the perfect summer drink that is incredibly tasty and refreshing. This super easy homemade Lemonade recipe requires only 3 simple ingredients and has the perfect balance!
- 1 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 cup water (for simple syrup)
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 3 cups cold water
First, make the simple syrup by combining the sugar and 1 cup of water into small saucepan. Bring to a simmer until the sugar dissolves completely, then remove from heat and set aside.
While the water heats up for the simple syrup, juice about 5-6 lemons until you get 1 cup of juice. After the simple syrup has cooled, combine with the juice and water into a serving pitcher. Add more water depending on your preference, and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
Serve over ice with sliced lemons.
