  • TO MAKE THE SYRUP: The lemons should be room temperature or warmer before the juice is removed. This will make it easier to squeeze the juice from the fruit.  Juice 3 to 4 lemons to produce 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.  Set juice aside.
  • In a sauce pan, bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil and then add 1 1/2 cup of sugar. Continue to cook over medium low heat until sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and add the fresh lemon juice. Stir to mix thoroughly and then allow the mixture to cool.
  • The lemon syrup can be stored in the refrigerator until needed or it can be mixed with water to produce lemonade.
  • TO MAKE THE LEMONADE: add lemon syrup to 4 1/2 cups of water. Taste to test for sweetness. If necessary, add a little more water. Refrigerate until chilled or serve over ice.
  • To make a single serving, add 1/3 cup of syrup to 3/4 cup of water.
