Growing up nothing made me happier than running to the fridge and getting some of my momma’s ice-cold lemonade. In the South we make lemonade a bit different from other people. We slice the lemons and allow them to marinate overnight in the water and sugar which makes a perfect combination that is not too sweet nor to sour.
8 cups cold water
3-4 lemons, washed and sliced
1 cup sugar
1. In a 4-quart saucepan on high heat add 2 cups of water and sugar, boil until dissolved about 2 minutes.
2. In a pitcher add lemon slices and remaining water. Pour sugar syrup on top, refrigerate over night.
