Southern Style Lemonade

Southern Style Lemonade

  • 10 lemons, plus more for garnishing if desired
  • 2 – 2½ cups sugar
  • 6 cups water, divided (4 cups needs to be ice cold)

  4. Simmer lightly for about 5 minutes or until sugar has dissolves and the mixture has a light yellow color. Remove from heat.
  5. Juice the lemons.
  6. Strain the lemon juice into a large pitcher.

  8. Add in 4 cups of cold water.
  9. Taste to make sure it’s not too sweet for you if so add more water.
