If you want some of the best lemonade in the whole world, you need to start with a really old recipe from England that begins by making a syrup.
Homemade Fresh Lemonade
3 cups sugar
3 cups water
3 cups lemon juice (approx. 12 lemons)
12 cups cold water
In a stock pot dissolve sugar in 3 cups water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and a syrup forms. Let cool for an hour. Add fresh lemon juice. Slice lemon halves into rings and add to marinade. Place in the refrigerator overnight for the lemonade to marinate. Dilute lemon concentrate with water 4 to 1. Serve over crushed ice and enjoy.
This is an old English recipe and one that truly is delicious. This makes almost enough for the whole summer.
Give it a try, you will have the best Lemonade ever.
