Homemade Lemonade Recipe

 I know it's probably not feeling like summer where ever you are, but lately here in So Cal it's been a nice warm summer. We got a bunch of lemons {and I mean a BUNCH!!!} from a friend at church who has a tree and decided to make some lemonade. There's nothing better than homemade lemonade!!

{not my picture, but I totally wish I drank my lemonade like this!}



1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3-4 additional cups of cold water {depending on your preference}

In a small saucepan, heat 1c sugar and 1c water to create a simple syrup. Heat until completely combined. Then add lemon juice. {I like to run mine through a small strainer to get all the pulp out... but if you like it pulpy.. then leave it all in!} Combine those then add water to your desired taste. I only add about 2 cups of water. That way we can add ice in our cups when we drink it and it's perfect!!
Garnish with some frozen raspberries or strawberries, or mint leaves!



Here was our POTD {picture of the day} for that day. The kids loved squeezing the juice out of the lemons. Then Danior double checked to make sure they got it all. 

So much fun!!! They have been asking to make more lemonade almost every day since...
