“We get a lot of lemons off of our bush at home. Lemonade is a great way to use them up! These are the proportions of lemon juice, sugar and water that I like.” – April Ferre
- 5 Cups Water Divided
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Meyer Lemon Juice
- Simple syrup: In a small saucepan combine 1 cup water and sugar. Place over medium heat and stir until sugar is just dissolved. Remove from heat and cool.
- In a pitcher, combine simple syrup, remaining 4 cups water and lemon juice. Chill. Serve over ice.
- Make it sparkling! Use 4 cups seltzer water instead of plain water for an extra special treat.
