Happy National Lemonade Day!

Happy National Lemonade Day!  If you think about it, it's kind of weird for lemonade to be a summer beverage when lemons aren't in season until the winter.  But then, no one wants to drink an icy cold beverage in the winter... and hot lemonade sounds just awful.  Iced lemonade in the summertime it is!

So here's my personal recipe for delicious lemonade... which I'm sure is not terribly different from thousands of others.  But it's solid and I think you'll enjoy it.

Mel's Fresh Lemonade
*makes 2 quarts
  • in a 2-quart pitcher, combine 1/2 cup sugar and at least one cup of hot water - hot enough to melt the sugar.  stir until sugar is totally melted.
  • add ice to the pitcher so that the ice melts and your sugar-water mixture is cold, with just a few ice cube bits floating in there.
  • squeeze the juice from three medium-sized lemons; remove any seeds from the juice.
  • add the lemon juice to your pitcher and stir.
  • fill the pitcher up the rest of the way with cold filtered water.
  • enjoy!
