Fresh-Squeezed Lemonade by the Glass
1 cup tap water
1 Tablespoon AND 1 teaspoon sugar (I like organic cane sugar, but white sugar is fine)
1 medium sized lemon (I get organic lemons 2 lbs/$2.99 at my local small town grocery store, Harps)
1 cup ice cubes
1) Pour water into large drinking glass and add sugar. Stir until completely dissolved.
2) Juice lemons. After making these Clean Eating Lemon Bars a couple of times, I decided the $3.99 investment in a citrus juicer from my local Walmart was worth it, so that's what we used. It even has a pour spout, and works fabulously, the kids can use it all by themselves, I wish I'd gotten one years ago. I always roll the lemon across the table several times too, to loosen up the inside before juice, a trick I saw on Food Network years ago, and is great for the kids to help with too :)
3) Measure out 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice, and add to your sugar/water mixture. Add ice, let rest for a minute or two for it to cool down, and enjoy!
