Yesterday, I shared that life threw us a few lemons and that I actually did have to make some lemonade as a result. Today I thought I would share the recipe! We planted a Meyer lemon tree in our backyard a few years ago and last year was the first year that it yielded lemons. Since then, I have been trying to find the perfect lemonade recipe and I think I finally accomplished that yesterday! I generally prefer my lemonade more tart as opposed to sweet, but I think this recipe really balances the two.
Just mix 5 cups of water, 1 ¾ cups of sugar and 2 cups of lemon juice. This lemonade is so refreshing and is best serve cold over ice.
