♦SIMPLE SYRUP♦
This syrup is the sweetener for the beverage.

  • 1 cup white granulated sugar- Or any other sweetener
  • 1 cup water

  1. Over medium-high heat, add all the ingredients to a saucepan.
  2. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved in the water.
  3. Allow it to cool down before you use it.

♦LEMONADE♦

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup lemon juice- See Pro-tip below
  • Cold water
  • 1 cup simple syrup
  • Handful of fresh mint

Method:

  1. Add all the ingredients together and stir.
  2. Taste and adjust the sweetness and sourness to your liking- Add water or syrup.
  3. Enjoy with ice cubes.

Pro-tip:

  • Instead of 1 cup of lemon juice. You can peel 2 lemons and add water. Blend and strain and use the liquid as the base. I find this method helps you get the most of of the lemons.
