Did you ever dream of having a lemonade stand? Selling the cool, refreshing drinks on the sidewalk. Of course, you’d have an awesome little stand to sell them from. And at the end of the day, you’d have a few dollars with which to buy a My Little Pony or Hardy Boys book with. Of course, it would probably cost your parent’s more than those few dollars to supply you with your inventory and store front, but that wasn’t the point. You got to be an entrepreneur for the day, and it was awesome! Look out world, you were part of the money-making world!
Of course, in order to have the repeat customers, you’ve got to have a great product to sell. That is where this lemonade comes in. It is tangy, but sweet. A real refreshing drink. I had never made lemonade from scratch before, but it was awesome! For those of you readers that have access to a lemon tree, I’m envious! Remember…when life hands you lemons, make lemonade! 🙂
1 1/2 cups white sugar
8 cups water
1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice (I needed 10 lemons for that)
1. Combine sugar & water. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
2. Squeeze lemons to extract juice, making sure to remove the seeds, but leave some of the pulp.
3. Stir lemon juice with sugar water mixture. Serve chilled.
