Old-fashioned lemonade

Lemon

Make a simple syrup by combining 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir frequently until sugar dissolves completely. Pour into glass container. (You can store this in the refrigerator for at least a week.)

To make a full pitcher of lemonade: Mix one full recipe of simple syrup in a pitcher with the juice of six lemons (I like it pulpy, but you can strain it). Add four cups cold water and mix well. Sometimes I use an equal amount of chilled sparkling water in place of the cold water to add a festive fizz.

Serve in clear glasses with plenty of ice and slices of lemon. Find a shady spot -- and chill.
