Freshly made lemonade

Lately I’ve been drinking quite a lot of lemonade. I suppose it’s because we’ve been having so nice weather here.
Anyway, up until now I’ve been buying bottled lemonade, but now I’ve decided to make my own. If you know of any good recipe for lemonade, I’d love to hear it. Otherwise, I’ll just improvise until I get it right. How hard can it be?

    You squeeze the lemon juice out and mix it with water and sugar. Simple enough.

    ((From Southern Living Magazine– I don’t use a recipe, so wasn’t too sure on exact amounts!))
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup boiling water
    1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
    5 cups cold water
    Stir together sugar and 1/2 cup boiling water until sugar dissolves.
    Stir in lemon juice, and 5 cups cold water. Chill.
    Ingredient amounts vary to taste…some like it sweet, like here in the Southern US, some not as much, but the procedure is the same. Like with making sweet iced tea– dissolve the sugar in hot tea before adding cold water and ice :)

    Here, for the first time ever, I reveal my secret recipe fot the perfect lemonade (not too sweet, not too bitter):

    You’ll need:
    6 lemons
    1 cup sugar (200 gr., less if you like it bitter)
    8 cups of boiled water-You could use the same cup you used for the sugar or you could use a normal coffee mug.

    Zest the lemons. Add sugar + boiling water + zest in one glass or metal cup (cools faster), give it a good stir. Leave it to cool down.
    On the other side, squeeze the lemons, keep the juice of the lemons in the fridge.

    Drain the zesty sugary water until there are no zest left in. Add cold lemon juice, give it a good stir. Keep it in the fridge until it properly cools down (2 hours or so).

    Serve with a lot of ice + a few leaves of fresh mint or basil.

    Now, it’s not a secret anymore. :)
