Making Lemonade

Atticus has been asking for awhile for us to make lemonade from scratch. So we did. It was a great success. I looked on the internet and sort of compiled amounts and ways of doing it and settled on making a syrup on the stove with part of the water and all of the sugar and then adding the extra lemon juice into the hot sugar syrup. The amounts I used were: 1 cup sugar, 5 cups water, the juice from 8 lemons. It was a perfect tangy amount -- not too sweet. Dietrich is convinced this is what they drink in heaven. (-:

Toasting was their idea -- They came up with a new thing they liked about summer each time they toasted and took a sip.

Dietrich said, "Let's thumbs up it!"
