Recipe from Angie Kusek-Schubert.
1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ cups water
Zest from one lemon
1 ½ cups fresh lemon juice
Cold water or sparkling water
Fresh mint leaves
Measure the sugar and water into a sauce pan. While stirring with a wooden spoon, bring the mixture to a boil for 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Let cool slightly.
Add fresh squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest to the sugar syrup. Cool completely. Pour the lemonade syrup into a quart jar. Cover tightly with the lid. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 weeks.
When you're read to serve the lemonade, put some ice cubes in the bottom of a glass. Pour ¼ cup of the lemon syrup over the ice cubes. Add ¾ cup cold water or sparkling water and stir.
Float a thin slice of lemon and, if you like, a fresh mint leaf on top of each glass.
The recipe makes enough syrup for 14 glasses of lemonade.
