Inspired by:
Simply Recipes

I bought some lemons to make lemon bars and had some lemons left over. I came across the lemonade recipe as I was searching online for inspiration. I have never tried it before, but have heard so much about it through friends from the US, so I thought I would give it a go.

Time Taken:
15-20 mins preparation, plus 40 mins to chill.

Number of Dirty Dishes:
Saucepan, lemon squeezer, knife, spoon, measuring cups, jug

I used:
1 cup sugar,
1 cup lemon juice- from 6-8 small lemons
1 cup water
5 cups cold water

What I did:
In a medium sized saucepan add lemon juice, water and sugar and mix together. 
Place the saucepan on a medium heat and stir until sugar has completely dissolved. 
Take off the heat and allow to cool.
Add to 5 cups cold water and chill in jugs for 40 minutes, OR chill syrup for 40 minutes and add the cold water before serving.

Comments after drinking Lemonade:
I have made this three times in the last week I love it so much. Everyone that I have served it to, loved its refreshing taste and came back for more.

What I would do different:
Fresh mint would be a great garnish.
