Recipe: Pantry Lemonade

The Girl is not feeling well today.  Her tummy is feeling poorly.  She asked for lemonade.

No fresh lemons in the house... but a giant bottle of lemon juice.
Sick Girl.  Cat helping her feel better.

So, here's a recipe for Pantry Lemonade.  It's not the fanciest lemonade you'll ever have, but it's yummy and easy and quick in a pinch.

The Girl approves.

Pantry Lemonade

Per 8 oz serving:
1 Tbsp simple syrup*
1 Tbsp lemon juice
~8 Tbsp cold water

Combine ingredients in an 8-oz glass, over ice if desired.  Adjust lemon or sweetness as desired.  Enjoy.

(You could scale this up and make it in a pitcher, if you like)

*Simple Syrup
1 1/2 c water
1 1/3 c sugar

Heat the water and the sugar in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved.  Transfer to a mason jar cool.  Store in the refrigerator.

(I use this simple syrup to sweeten cold drinks - like my iced coffee)

Pin It!
