Refreshing Lemonade

 This is my son.  He's is an artist.  He likes to take common objects and create a perfect masterpiece.  He wanted to make lemonade... not the powdery fake stuff but freshly squeezed, refreshing lemonade. 

 So we did.  It was delicious.  It was easy to make too. Take a dozen lemons, squeeze them and strain out any seeds.  Meanwhile, simmer water and sugar to make a simple syrup.  Let cool.  Add the strained lemon juice and stir together.  

Add the lemon water to a 1 gallon pitcher.  Fill with cold water.  Mix together well.  Slice a lemon into thin slices.  Put ice and lemon slices in individual glasses and fill with lemonade.  Perfect for a lazy summer day. 


13 lemons
2 cups sugar
1 gallon water
Ice cubes

Cut 12 lemons in half.  Using a citrus squeezer, squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl.  Strain out any seeds.  

Simmer 1 cup water and the sugar together to make a simple syrup.  Let cool.  Pour into 1-gallon pitcher and add the strained lemon juice; stir together well.  Fill pitcher with water and ice.

Garnish each glass with additional ice and sliced lemon.  Serve.  A masterpiece!

Perfect for a lazy summer day!
