Happy #NationalLemonadeDay - Classic Lemonade Recipe

Apparently it is National Lemonade Day!  I am a complete sucker for "national _______ days." Really I'll use any excuse to try a new recipe or an old favourite one.  Believe it or not I've never made lemonade from scratch until now. I went into town and picked up some lemons (by some I mean 10) and came home and started.  I went with a recipe from Paula Deen because that seemed appropriate. 

For this recipe you need: 
1 cup of hot water
2 cups of sugar 
2 cups of lemon juice 
10 cups of water 

Star by dissolving the sugar in the hot water to make a simple syrup. Also juice the lemons, I strained some of the pulp out just because I didn't want it too pulpy. Mixed the lemon juice and simple syrup together in a big jug and add cold water. I would taste it as you go so you can get the taste you'd like, I added a little more water and lots of ice because I wanted it a little more refreshing. 

Pour yourself a glass and enjoy.
