6 cups water
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup sugar
I recommend making a simple syrup to mix in the sugar. This will guarantee all the sugar dissolves.
- Mix one cup of water and the sugar over medium heat until all the sugar had dissolved and set aside to cool.
- Once cooled, add the remaining 5 cups of water and lemon juice to the simple syrup.
- Chill or serve immediately with lots of ice.
Add two springs of basil. These can do in the finished lemonade fresh. Alternatively, give them a rough chop and mix in with the simple syrup, and strain before using.
More fruit! Fresh fruit is great in lemonade! Add strawberries, peaches, or cucumbers.
