Old-Fashioned Lemonade
There’s nothing more refreshing than a glass of iced-cold lemonade on a hot summer day.  For an extra special treat, try our strawberry version, which is guaranteed to keep you cool.
Serves 6

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
About 4 cups cold water

In a large heatproof pitcher or measuring cup, whisk together the sugar and boiling water until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Stir in the lemon juice, stirring well. Adjust the lemonade to taste.
Serve in glasses over ice, with lemon slices.

Strawberry Lemonade
Thaw frozen strawberries, and puree until smooth. I like to use a stick/hand blender or regular blender for this. Stir strawberry puree into prepared lemonade. Add to taste.

Lemonade Soda
Top off glasses of lemonade with chilled sparkling water.
