- 2 cups water -
- 3 cups sugar -
- 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (approximately six large lemons) -
Bring the water and sugar to a boil in a small pot. Add the lemon juice and bring to a boil again. Cool. Refrigerate the syrup. Serve diluted with water, to taste.
Note: This syrup freezes very well. I often double the recipe and freeze it in empty soda bottles. Many people do not use store bought drinks on Pesach, and this is a terrific alternative.
Tip: To get more juice out of your lemons, heat them in the microwave first, or put them in a bowl with boiling water.
