True Summer Refreshment- 10 Homemade Ways to Flavor Lemonade

Is there anything better than lemonade in the summer?
Not much is as refreshing?
We love to make homemade versions and thought we would share.

Start with 6-8 lemons, remember the thinner the skin means more juice!
Cut in half, juice them and add it with one cup water to boil on the stovetop.
Add 2 cups sugar to help make syrup.

Once cooled, 
add to 3 quarts water.
Heres the easy way to add
 and store it.

We add Cran-Grape Juice or  Natural Cherry Syrup to make pink lemonade and add a different twist.

Here are a few more of our faves.
Love all the presentations and the flavors!

This is an awesome Strawberry Basil Flavored Lemonade. You know I LOVE anything with BASIL, remember my Lemon Basil Sorbet Recipe. I hadn't thought how good adding strawberries would be until now. Yummm.
