A Classic Fresh Lemonade Recipe Made Perfect

Most People know how to make lemonade at least they think they do, you take some sugar lemons and water and that is all to the home made fresh lemonade recipe. Well there are ways to make the perfect lemonade that will make your guests ask for more and for your recipe as well.

The word lemonade means different things in different country’s, there are actually two kinds of beverages one is carbonated (Australia, UK and New Zealand) and one is not Canada and US. Both are lemon flavoured soft drinks. In French and other European languages the word limonade means soft drink, regardless of the flavour.

You need the following ingredients to make lemonade for about 6 people:
* 1 cup lemon juice
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup water (to make the syrup)
* 3 to 4 cups cold water

The actual secret to our fresh lemonade recipe is to make a sugar lemon syrup first. In our fresh lemonade recipe to make a classic lemonade you need to dissolve the sugar in a saucepan in the cup of hot water this way the sugar completely disappears and does not sink to the bottom. Add the cup of lemon juice and the 3 or 4 cups of water (to your taste) and place it for about 45 minutes in the refrigerator.
Add some two tablespoons of freshly juiced lemon juice to it for that extra bite.

My nice who lives in one of the southern states adds tree to five droplets of Tabasco to the mixture, and on a real hot day, that is actually rather nice. But you if you make this fresh lemonade recipe for the whole family it probably is not a good idea.
