This is a very refreshing recipe for lemonade, including only sugar, water, fresh lemons and soda water! It is posted in honor of Russell, who likes to cook.
For each guest, fill a 12 ounce glass with ice.
Add 1/3 cup of simple syrup (made from equal parts of sugar and water, boiled until the sugar has dissolved, then cooled.)
Squeeze the juice of one lemon in to the glass.
Fill the glass to the top with soda water (sparkling water, seltzer water)
That’s it! This is a very refreshing gluten free and alcohol free drink to serve to guests.
You can add shredded lemon zest (just the yellow part of the rind) to the sugar and water for the simple syrup, to add more lemon flavor if you wish.
