I looked in the bottom of the fridge this afternoon while it was in the upper 80′s (on April 1!!! Not a joke…) and found a bag of Meyer lemons. Maybe it was the heat, but I’m pretty sure I heard all of those lemons saying, “Make us into lemonade. Make us into Lemonade.” I didn’t bother with trying to find a lemonade recipe, and I used at least half as much sugar as I remember being in the one recipe I’ve used in the past. Hubby kept telling me it was the best lemonade he’d ever had. Goodness, I think I’ll have to buy another bag of Meyer lemons next time I’m at the store.
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup Meyer lemon juice – about 6 lemons (Meyer lemons are sweeter; if you don’t have them or can’t find them, use a regular lemonade recipe.)
Mix water and sugar in a small sauce pan and heat just until the sugar all dissolves. Set this aside to cool a bit and juice the lemons. Add the lemon juice to the simple syrup and stir to combine. To serve, pour warm over a glass FULL of ice. This recipe made enough for 3 adult size servings or 2 adults and 2 boys.
