No fresh lemons in the house... but a giant bottle of lemon juice.

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.
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)
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)
