1 Cup of sugar
1/8 tsp salt (this is to prevent the lemonade from being bitter)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries (*optional)
In a pan, combine water, sugar, and salt. Bring ingredients to a boil and continue to boil for 2 minutes. Chill the sugar water in the refrigerator for atleast 60 minutes.
In 2 quart pitcher, mix cooled sugar water and lemon juice together. Pour over a cup full of ice and serve.
*If making strawberry lemonade, mix strawberries with cooled lemonade. I let them defrost a little bit before adding. Sit for about 15 minutes, or long enough for the liquid to turn a light pink.
This is a simple recipe, but quite delicious on a hot summer evening.
