It’s scorching hot outside of our Cambridge offices this Wednesday morning. As a public service announcement, we’ve provided some tantalizing lemonade recipes to keep you cool! We know how tough it can be to stay cool in this heat, but a big glass of lemonade and a quick dip in the ocean can go a long way. We’ve been working hard this week to bring you the products you need – a cool glass of lemonade is definitely in store. Look for more blog posts next week, as we begin our “Producer of the Week” series, where we will profile a different producer every week.
1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)
1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2 While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3 Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
