So here it is, the classic recipe for lemonade:
Water – 4 cups
Sugar – 3 4 cups
Lemon juice – 1 cup
Lemon or orange for decoration
Sugar and lemon juice are mixed with a glass of water until sugar is completely dissolved. Then the rest of the water is added, all this is poured into a jug, decorated with slices of lemon or orange, ice is added. Top can be decorated with mint.
Another option for the preparation of sugar concentrate is sugar and water in the proportion of a glass of sugar to a glass of water (or 2 glasses of water), put on fire and simmer slowly to a boil. Then the rest of the ingredients are added, everything is cooled together. Or you can just pour lemon fresh mineral water and add a little sugar – very simple!
Important: There is no need to observe the exact amount of ingredients. If your concentrate is too sweet, you can always add more water and lemon juice; if it is too sour, add more sugar. Instead of plain water, soda can be used in any lemonade – it cools even better. Fruits and mint will be a decoration for the drink, basil and other herbs will give an interesting taste. Everything to taste!
