how to: make lemonade

step one: get your lemons and start squeezing! jeremy says if you roll them before you cut them it loosens the flesh and makes them easier to juice. it's like polite conversation before you get to the good stuff! we squeezed six lemons to make a jug.

step two: make a simple syrup by combining one cup of water with one cup of sugar and heating until the sugar dissolves. complicated syrup must have more steps than this.

step three: put a yellow dress on. jeremy said i looked like a lemon in this photo is that a compliment? i'm sure it is. lemons smell nice and roll around happily on the cutting board.

step four: pour the simple syrup into a jug with 6 cups of water and 3 cups of the fresh squeezed lemon juice. refrigerate to cool or if you can't wait, pour over ice and enjoy!

so puckery! so summery! so make some!
