The Perfect Lemonade

For this refreshing drink, we combined fresh squeezed lemon juice and a quick sugar syrup. Fresh mint ice cubes add a hint of crisp flavor.

  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 15 to 18 medium lemons (3 cups juice)
  • 5 cups cold water
  • 1 lemon, washed and thinly sliced
  • 14 small fresh mint sprigs
  • For the sugar syrup, bring water and sugar to boil in saucepan, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Pour into bowl. Cool.
  • Microwave 5 or 6 lemons at a time on High 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, just until warm to the touch. Cut lemons in half and squeeze juice. Discard seeds and transfer juice and pulp to a large pitcher. Repeat with remaining lemons. Stir in cooled syrup and water.
  • Measure 1-1/2 cups lemonade mixture in a 2-cup glass measure. (Stir sliced lemon into remaining lemonade mixture; cover and set aside.) Arrange one sprig of mint per cube in an ice-cube tray; pour in the 1-1/2 cups lemonade mixture. Freeze the lemonade ice-cube tray 4 hours, until firm. Cover and refrigerate lemonade.
  • Pour lemonade into tall glasses over ice cubes. Makes about 2 quarts (8 servings).
