I'm keeping this post short today. We are expecting a new grandbaby to be born this week. Labor is to start Wednesday morning, unless baby decides to come earlier. We are so excited to say the least! My mind is thinking only baby thoughts today, but I wanted to share a cooling refreshment with you too. Have a great day! Try to stay cool if you are experiencing this heat wave too.

Make a simple syrup by mixing-
1 cup almost boiling water
1 cup granulated sugar
Mix the two together until the sugar is desolved. Let cool.
To 2 quart pitcher add;
6 cups cold water
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
the cooled syrup
Mix and chill well. Serve over ice.
The recipe calls for 1 lemon to be sliced and added to the lemonade as well. You may need to add another cup of cold water with the lemon slices.
I loved this as made, but my husband prefers it a bit sweeter. So you may have to adjust the sweetness, tartness to your own tastes. Enjoy!
