Busy Cooking: Homemade Pink Lemonade
It's GRENADINE!!!!! (and you thought yellow and red made orange- no!, it's pink!)
I adapted this recipe from soulfoodsoutherncooking.
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 5-6 lemons)
4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp grenadine
1) Put 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup sugar in saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved. This is called a simple syrup. Set aside to cool (now you will not have to worry about the sugar floating to the bottom).
2) Juice the lemons
4) Pour into an ice filled glass and enjoy ( you can adjust sugar amounts depending on how tart or sweet you like your lemonade).
Ah yum: What a way to beat the heat, bring a bowl full of ice, cold homemade pink lemonade, lots of cups, and straws outside and enjoy your drink.
