When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! I couldn’t wait to try the lemonade recipe I posted in last week’s Friday Favorites, so I made it on Sunday! Talk about easy. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make my own lemonade. It’s simple, delicious, and the perfect refreshing drink for a hot summer day. You MUST try this at home!

1 cup lemon juice (from 6 – 7 lemons)
1 cup sugar
7 cups water, separated
Squeeze the lemons through a sieve or strainer until you have 1 cup of juice. You’ll want to remove all the seeds, but you can push some pulp through for a more home-style twist.
Combine the sugar with 1 cup of water in a sauce pan and heat over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. (Congrats, you just made simple syrup!) Remove the sauce pan from heat and allow to cool for 15-30 minutes.
Combine the lemon juice and simple syrup with the rest of the water. Stir well.
Chill the lemonade for at least an hour before serving.
