Homemade Lemonade

 
This past Sunday was quite pretty here....a perfect day for homemade lemonade and a BBQ.
 
Homemade Lemonade
 
Ingredients
 
4 cups sugar
6 cups water
24 whole lemons, juiced
8 cups of additional water
and lots of ice
 
Directions
 
Heat 4 cups of sugar with 6 cups of water in a medium saucepan until dissolved. Set this in the fridge to cool.
 
Chill the lemon juice if you have time.
 
Pour the lemon juice into a large vat. Pour in 3/4 of the sugar syrup, then top of the vat with ice. Pour in 8 cups of water (more or less), stir it around, then give it a taste. Add more sugar syrup if it needs more sweetness or more water if it needs dilution.
 
Serve immediately.

  1. Wow!! I have to try it..a question: are your Sanpellegrino water bottles made of glass? I live in Italy, not far from the town of San Pellegrino where the water is "made" and I can find only plastic ones ;)
