Lemons ( save rinds)

The secret to making perfect lemonade is to use a simple
syrup made by boiling the sugar with water. We have
added the rinds.

Use 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice and 4 tablespoons sugar
for each cup of water. Combine the sugar and water and
add the lemon rinds left over from squeezing the juice. Boil
mixture for 2 minutes. Discard the rinds. Chill the syrup.
When chilled, add the lemon juice. Pour over crushed ice
in a tall glass; add a sprig of mint.

Add a bit of grenadine to achieve Pink Lemonade.

Editor's Note:
Be kind to the environment. Please use plastic or reuseable straws and compost
your lemon rinds.
