Recipe: Dorothy’s Lemonade Concentrate
If you have my favorite variety, Meyer lemons, use them. Meyers have a slightly less tart, floral quality that is addictive!
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup sugar
In a 4-cup glass measuring cup, put 1 cup water and then add lemon juice up to the 2-cup mark. Add sugar and stir well to dissolve. Store in a jar or closed container in the refrigerator, or freeze for longer storage.
To make a glass of lemonade:
Use 1/3 cup concentrate and 2/3 cup water, over ice.
To make and use the entire recipe at once:
Add all of concentrate (about 2 1/3 cups) to a 2-quart pitcher. Add 4 2/3 cups water, stir well, and serve in individual glasses, over ice.
Taste and adjust to your liking — add a snitch more sugar if you need it (lemons have different levels of tart), or add a little more water if it seems too strong to you. Remember that the ice in the glass will dilute it slightly.
