Heavenly Sweet Lemonade

I make this a couple times a year, a few at best. My daughter loves squeezing the juice of the lemons with an old fashioned glass juicer I got from my late grandmother. I feel like Grandma Pearl smiles from heaven every time we make it. We pour her a little glass and I tell my daughter a story about my grandmother who was likely the sweetest person who’s ever lived. Hence the name, Heavenly Sweet Lemonade. There really isn’t anything better than real lemonade in the summer. And it’s so easy to make that it’s something you can have your children help with and they’ll feel pretty good about their special treat. To make an incredible lemonade you need to start with an simple syrup. Yes, simple syrup is made with white sugar. No, simple syrup is not clean. This is a real deal treat that you wouln’t want available everyday because it’s pretty sweet, but I promise you it’s not just healthier than the instant stuff (junk), but it tastes a million times better too. If you’ve never had real lemonade, this is going to be a treat you’ll remember, and you’ll never want to drink anything but the real stuff. If you’re craving something really sweet like a cookie or a pastry, this will do the trick. it’s so sweet and tart that you really can’t drink a lot of it at once so it’s tough to overindulge. If you want to add a sophisticated twist to this treat add some fresh mint to the pitcher, your tastebuds will be so happy.
