Lemonade Default

Recipe

Lemonade is probably the most refreshing thirst-quencher I can think of for the hot months of July and August. It is something I associate with summers, laziness, reading a book, or doing nothing – a part of civilized life. It should always be made with pure lemon juice and sugar syrup – tangy and not sweet. The tongue should smart with more sour than sweet and the jaw should squeak a little when you drink it.

Yield: About 6 glasses

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Simple Syrup 
  • Juice of 6 to 7 lemons (1 ½ cups lemon juice)
  • Soda water (optional)

Directions

In a pitcher, combine the simple syrup and lemon juice and chill until ready to serve.

Add 3 cups of soda water or ice water to the mixture and pour over ice in tall glasses.
