Freshly Squeezed Lemonade

Freshly Squeezed Lemonade - ButterYum

You are only 3 ingredients away from freshly squeezed lemonade - one of life's simple pleasures.  

Start by combining water and sugar in a saucepan.

Heat gently and stir to dissolve sugar.

When the water changes from cloudy to clear, the sugar is dissolved.  Remove from the heat.

Cut a bunch of fresh lemons (I used 10).  

Here's a tip:  cold lemons don't like to give up all their juice so make sure your lemons are room temperature or slightly war before juicing.  You can warm them by covering with warm water or pop each one in the microwave for 10-20 seconds until warm.  Rolling the lemons on the counter using moderate pressure before squeezing helps as well.

Time to juice those lemons - an electric lemon juicer makes very quick work of it.  This kind of handheld juicer also works well.

Pour the remaining water, lemon juice, and sugar/water mixture into a large pitcher and mix well to combine.  Serve over ice.
