Maple lemonade is the perfect thirst quenching summertime drink. Sweetened with maple syrup rather than sugar, this lemonade is refreshingly tart with just the right amount of sweetness. The flavors of fresh squeezed lemon and pure maple syrup leave you unable to consider buying lemonade form a store again.
Most homemade lemonade requires boiling water and sugar together so that the sugar will dissolve completely. This means both the unnecessary use of a stove on a hot day, and having to wait for the water to cool before being able to make the lemonade. This step is avoided by using maple syrup which easily mixes with the lemon juice and water. This means that within a few minutes of craving lemonade you can be sitting in the back yard in the shade sipping on a refreshing glass of it.
Add a shot of vodka and you have a hard lemonade that can’t be beat!
What You Will Need:
- 1 cup Lemon Juice (approx 4-5 lemons)
- ½ cup Maple Syrup
- 2½ cups Cold Water
Roll the lemons gently but firmly between your hand and the counter. This will loosen the insides and ensure that you get the most juice possible out of your lemons.
Cut lemons in half and squeeze by hand or use a juice machine.
Pour juice into your jug or juice container and add the maple syrup and water. Stir well, pour into tumblers with ice and cool off!
