A cool breeze, the birds are chirping, the smell of fresh cut grass...
all signs of Spring, with Summer just around the corner.
The perfect drink for days like this is
Ice Cold Lemonade
Homemade Lemonade Syrup
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup lemon juice
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat; boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice.
Set aside to cool; cover and refrigerate.
I poured mine in to a canning jar with a lid.
To serve, stir 2 TBSP syrup
(or more if you'd like)
into 3/4 cup cold water; add ice.
Makes 20 servings.
Not too tangy, not too sweet.
And yes, very refreshing!
