Ingredients
  

Simple Syrup #1:

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water

Simple Syrup #2:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup raw honey

Lemonade:

  • Simple syrup 1 recipe
  • 1 cup lemon juice 4-6 lemons
  • 3 cups cold water

Variations:

  • 2 pints blueberries or
  • 3 cups chopped peaches

Instructions
 

Syrup 1 & 2:

  • Place ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over a medium-low setting, stirring until the sugar/honey dissolves.
  • Once the liquid is clear, remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.

Lemonade:

  • Juice lemons to render 1 cup of fresh juice.
  • Add the juice and simple syrup to a pitcher and stir.
  • Add the water and stir to combine.

Variations:

  • Add fresh blueberries or diced peaches to a saucepan over a medium-high setting. Heating breaks down the fruit and helps render the juices.
  • Once mushy and mostly liquid, remove from the heat and pass through a fine sieve to separate the juice.
  • Add to your lemonade recipe.

Notes

Note: Choose one method for making simple syrup, then choose your variations from that point.
