You must have realised by now my love for terraces.Especially before the summer they are on their finest best.In this country we have plenty of those and it is a daily habit to enjoy a beautiful sunset.Just like today.And something special for your refreshment!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup room temperature water
- 3 cups cold water
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 3 teaspoons grenadine
Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and place the saucepan over medium heat. Stir the mixture occasionally to help it dissolve, if necessary, then remove the saucepan from the heat when the sugar has completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Pour the lemon juice (either fresh squeezed or store bought is fine) into a pitcher. Dilute the lemonade with the cold water, then add the simple syrup and grenadine and stir thoroughly to combine. Chill in the refrigerator before serving.
Optional: To create an alcoholic version, add vodka to taste and mix thoroughly before chilling.
