Simply lemonade

Everyone loves a nice glass of iced lemonade on a warm day!  Who doesn't??  To make a perfect lemonade, it is just as easy as 1, 2, 3!  Just 1 cup of lemon juice + 1 cup of water + 1 cup of sugar!!  To those who does not like sweet lemonade, you can reduce the sugar portion to 3/4 or less, or even better, use honey (about 1/2 cup).  Taste nicer!

Lemonade is great for relieving sore throat.  I had sore throat and flu for 2 days now; under the weather lately.  My cousin gave me some lemons when I visited her last week.  Initially planned to use some of the lemons as natural air freshener and fridge deodorizer, but now I used them up for lemonade. 



1. Make sugar syrup - just dissolve the sugar in the boiled water. It tasted better and sweeter to have dispersed sugar syrup than having the sugar sink at the bottom.
2. Squeeze juices from 4 - 5 lemons to make 1 cup of lemon juice.  Add sugar syrup to the lemon juice.  Stir well.  Add 3 - 4 cups of water to dilute the mixture.
3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Serve with ices and slices of lemon.
