I know it’s not even quite spring yet but the sunshine has me itching for summer and a tall glass of cold lemonade. I bought a bag of lemons the other day and decided to make homemade lemonade. There’s really nothing quite like fresh squeezed lemonade and it’s really easy to make too. And then I got to thinking — what about gourmet flavored lemonade? How fun would that be for a summer party? So I tested out a few recipes using Young Living Essential Oils and the results were amazing!
First, start with your basic lemonade. Here’s the recipe I used:
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
Combine 1/2 cup water with 1/2 cup sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved then let cool.
Mix the cooled syrup with the lemon juice and 2.5-3 cups of water to taste.
