Recipe Notes

By warming up, almost to the boiling point lemon juice with lemon skin, you will release an amazing aroma and the taste of lemonade is much richer. If it is too strong, add more water and balance it with Sweetener. You may add 1/2 cup (or more) of Vodka or Tequila to spike it up, for the adult version. You may use the other version for Vodka lemonade by making a sugar syrup, Thick or Rich Simple Syrup (basic, simple syrup) - A ratio of 1 part water to 1 part sugar - This is used as the basis for cold fruit drinks and cocktails. Make it on medium-low temperature until you reach the right consistency. Cool it, and add to the lemonade.
