When life gives you lemons… Our favorite (and simple) lemonade recipe.
Our last project/decor post using lemons and a cute little sign gave us a taste for lemonade and I’ve been making a glass or two every day since.
Here is our quick and easy by-the-glass recipe for lemonade and a few more of our favorite recipes.
Owen’s Favorite Single Serving Lemonade (serves one)
- Simple Syrup (needs 1 cup real sugar)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- Mint leaves (optional)
Bring one cup of water to a boil, stir in 1 cup sugar until it dissolves and then cool. I keep a jar of simple syrup in the fridge in a canning jar for beverages.
We juice our lemons with this simple glass juice. Go retro. Get a glass juicer.
Reserve one or two thin slices of lemon before you squeeze the halves.
Strain the juice into a glass, add 2-4 tablespoons of syrup depending on your love of sweetness level. Add water. Add ice.
Serve with a straw, add a slice or two of lemon and a sprig or two of mint, and enjoy lemonade for one.
Diabetic? On Keto? Substitute a nice stevia based sweetener for the sugar.
