Homemade Lemonade Recipe

Emma ran her own lemonade stand for the very first time.  She did everything from making the sign, to squeezing the lemons & serving the lemonade to her customers.

Here is the lemonade recipe we used:

First we created the syrup.  I guess what makes a great lemonade is that the sugar is all absorbed and not sitting at the bottom of the pitcher.

3/4 cup of sugar
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed  lemon juice

Put the water and the sugar in a pot on low fire until the sugar melts.  Once its melted add the mixture to the lemon juice. Dilute it with 3 to 4 cups of water depending on how strong you like it.  You may also increase the sugar to 1 cup if you like it sweeter. Refrigerate and serve cold.

It was delicious and everyone came back for seconds.

Emma was incredibly proud of herself.
