honey lemonade

1 1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup honey (12 oz)
8 cups of water

Note: This is a big batch, so squeeze the lemons before anything else. If you have less lemon juice, adjust as you see fit.

Mixing Tips: Honey does not dissolve easily in cold water, but dissolves more easily in lemon juice. Pour the lemon juice into your mixing container then pour in the honey and stir.

Add a cup of water and continue to stir until the honey is completely dissolved, then add the remaining 7 cups of water.

Add ice cubes, enjoy.

Spice up this recipe by using different varieties of honey. Orange blossom is a great option, try buckwheat if you’re feeling adventurous. Both impart unique flavors to lemonade.
