Better than lemonade….

Happy National Lemonade Day!

Here is my go-to recipe for lemon water- better than lemonade. It tastes better the longer you let it stand- at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with sliced lemons and limes, or even fresh raspberries for a gourmet effect.

Lemon Water

1 gallon cold water
2 tablespoons citric acid (found at Gygi or Kitchen Kneads- if you are local)
2 tablespoons pure lemon extract
2-3 cups sugar (per taste)

Mix together and serve after refrigerating for at least 1 hour.
