Katie's Lemonade recipe TNT

It's that time of the year again. Nothing like an icy cold glass of lemonade to chase away the heat.

KATIE’S LEMONADE
(Serves 6)

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, including pulp (remove seeds)
¾ cup granulated sugar
4 cups spring water
2 lemons

Slice one of the lemons very, very thin (seeds removed) and set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ¾ cup of the water. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and you are left with a simple syrup. Remove from heat and stir in the thinly sliced lemon. Cover and refrigerate until fully chilled.

To serve, strain the chilled lemon syrup into a large pitcher, add the lemon juice, remaining water and the second lemon that has been cut into ¼-inch slices. Stir well and pour over ice.

That would sure be tasty with a shot of Malibou Rum.

Best Lemonade (Kathe's)

Your lemonade sounds delicious and would be even better mixed with White Vermouth. It's a perfect summer drink and a thirst quencher. Try it!

is this lemonade really light? i don't usually go for lemonade because it tends to always be heavy & phlegmy.

I'm not sure what you mean about heavy and phlegmy. I like it but, then, I'm obviously partial to it. You might get a better evaluation from legend_018. She's made it a couple of times and has had good things to say about it.
