Best Lemonade Ever

Marvin left some Meyer lemons on the table in our lounge at work, so I grabbed three. I love Meyer lemons so much that I once bought a small tree and asked Wendell to plant it in our backyard. I tried sooooo hard to take good care of it, but it still died.

I found this "Best Lemonade Ever" recipe and decided to try it. First you gotta make this syrup by boiling 1 3/4 cups white sugar and 1 cup of water until the sugar dissolves. Cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chillled.
Squeeze lemons, and remove seeds but leave the pulp.
Add 1 1/2 cups of the lemon juice to 7 cups of water. Stir in chilled syrup.
Wendell liked it, but I thought it was a bit strong. It tasted better after all the ice melted. CQ said that the best lemonade is at Hot Dog on a Stick in Windward Mall. I'm gonna have to try it next time I'm there.

yummy! I usually make a "lemonade" with lemon juice, some honey and club soda.

That lemonade sounds great, looks good to. I like the one handed glass shot with the blue sky. Very nice!

Kat, that sounds so good. Thanks for the tip!

Erick, I must've shot over 20 pictures in different parts of my backyard trying to get my glass of lemonade to look "refreshing". That's the best I could do.

a little more sugar slurry or honey would have cut the tartness of the lemons a little bit more.

I think you're right; I think that's all it needed. It might be just me who thinks it's strong though 'cause the lemonade is almost all gone already!
