No one remembers how hot it was, but how cool the party was...
When you have been out celebrating the Nation's Birthday, it is always great to come home to a GREAT taste of lemonade!! LOVE IT!
Here's a great way.
Remember the starting proportions -
1 cup of sugar,
1 cup of lemon juice.
(This ratio makes a pretty sweet lemonade. Reduce the amount of sugar if you want your lemonade less sweet or if you are using Meyer lemons which are naturally sweeter than standard lemons.)
Want to know the secret family recipe? The ok lean into the screen (the secret to perfect lemonade is to start by making sugar syrup, also known as "simple syrup").
Dissolving the sugar in hot water effectively disperses the sugar in the lemonade, instead of having the sugar sink to the bottom.
