I love summertime and being able to make fresh lemonade for my family and friends as we get together for bbq's and making memories. I have made this recipe for several occasions and everyone always asks me for the recipe. So I would like to share it with you as well.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Ice, for serving
- In a large saucepan, heat the sugar and 1 cup water until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is hot. Allow to cool, and then place into a 2 quart drink dispenser or jug. Add 2 quarts cold water, the lemon juice and lemon slices and stir to combine. Refrigerate and allow to chill completely.
- Serve over ice and garnish with lemon slices.
