FOUR CITRUS LEMONADE
1. Make a simple syrup:1 cup sugar + 1 cup water = simple syrup Stir until dissolved and boil/simmer until thickened like I did with THIS recipe. optional: To make a mint infused syrup (which pairs well with the blend of citrus), add a bruised sprig of mint to the sugar/water mixture. Let syrup cool.
2. Juice:1 grapefruit 2 large oranges (or 3 small) 7-8 lemons 2 limes + slice up some of each kind of citrus for garnish
3. Mix:simple syrup + citrus blend of juicies + 5-6 cups of water + garnish slices of citrus =
I left the water amount variable so that you can mix your lemonade to your preferred dilution. I like mine strong and sour, but my man likes his less tart. So I usually always add water to his cup when I pour him a glass.
Truth be told, really, either way is goo-ood.
