Lemonade – sugar, water and lemon juice! How easy and very tasty! Homemade drink for summer days!If you love lemons, this is your solution for hot days! The sweetness of the lemonade will depend on your taste. I make quite sweet lemonade, but I also put a lot of ice in it so it keeps cool for a long time and reduces the sweetness. But if you don’t like very sweet drinks, you can increase the amount of water, this will give you more lemonade and less sweetness. The important thing here are the steps of preparation.

In fact, the secret to lemonade is the sugar syrup. We can’t just add sugar because it will fall to the bottom and won’t dissolve evenly. Therefore, I prepare a sugar syrup which I dilute with lemon juice and water. How easy ?! The quantities depend on your taste and the amount you want to get. From my recipe you will get about 7-8 glasses of lemonade. It depends on the amount of water and ice you add. I use more ice, so the lemonade gradually increases as the ice melts inside! 🙂

Try it! What could be better than making your own drink! You will determine how sweet or how acidic it is, depending on how much lemon juice you put in. You know that there are different types of lemons, some are sweeter, others have a sharper sour taste. I recommend the sweeter ones, but if you like the more sour ones, try them.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 cups water
  • 6 lemons

Instructions

  • Put the sugar and 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, allow the sugar to dissolve well. You can then remove it and let it cool.
  • Meanwhile, squeeze the lemons. From 6 medium-sized lemons, I got 1 ½ cups of lemon juice.
  • Pour the sugar syrup into a large jug and strain the lemon juice on it. Stir and leave it in the refrigerator for a few hours. You can then add the remaining 3 cups of water.
  • Stir and taste, if for you the lemonade is too sweet, add more water, but keep in mind that the ice that you will put will later melt and reduce the sweetness as well.

Enjoy 🙂
