    DIRECTIONS:

    1. First, How to Make Simple Syrup. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan. As soon as water starts to boil, add 1 cup of organic sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves completely. As soon as the sugar dissolves, it’s ready.

    2. To Juice the 6 lemons, I use an Omega J8006 Commercial Masticating Juicer. I slice up the lemon into eighths and toss it into the juice, peel and all. As long as you’re using Organic lemons, it’s safe to juice it with the peel on. Juicing the peel as well as the inner flesh of the lemon adds a much sharper zip to the flavor of the juice plus, you get the added health benefit of drinking the essential lemon oil that lies in the zest of the lemon.

    3. In a large container, Mix the juiced lemons together with the simple syrup. Add 8 cups of water and at least one tray of ice cubes. Pour up a crisp refreshing glass of the best lemonade you’ve ever had. Optionally, add some organic iced tea and enjoy the best Arnold Palmer you’ve ever had.
