Homemade lemonade is a staple in the South in the summertime. Why not serve your non-drinking party guests this wonderfully old fashioned sweet and sour mixture. Serve in mason jars for a truly Southern feel.

OLD FASHIONED SOUTHERN LEMONADE

INGREDIENTS
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)

METHOD

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.


Yield: Serves 6.


If you want to serve up some lemonade with a little more "spirit" you can buy ready to serve Southern Comfort Lemonade Cocktail.

Either way, pour yourself and your friends some ice cold glasses and kick back, relax and enjoy your True Blood summer!
