Southern Lemonade

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.

    Yummy! So simple! Gotta try it! Would t ruin it if I added mint to it?

    You could add mint for sure.

    So, is it still sour like lemonade or does it have a bitter taste like Italian bitter lemon lemonade? In the movie "Hound Dog" dakota fanning would make it with sliced lemons like this and I though it was just something they did in the movie (took place in the South).

    I never saw that movie is it good?

    Its kinda like when you add a lot of lemon to your water and then sugar kinda light.
