Lemonade – with home made lemon syrup

   Summer has started and most of us don’t feel like eating anything rather than drinking lots of water and having fruit juices. My mom’s sister makes this lemonade with home made lemon syrup, one for every summer and even my athai also makes this. Suddenly i thought of making this and i asked my mom to pass on the recipe to me from her sister.

NOTE:

  1. Never add the lemon juice when the syrup is hot or warm.
  2. Do not squeeze out too much of  juice from the lemon. This will give a bitter taste to the lemonade.
  3. This syrup if properly handled will stay good in refrigerator for 30 to 45 days

  1. This is awesome recipe n much needed for summer rather than rushing for bottled drinks this serves the purpose.. it would be wonderful if we mix with soda i guess.. Too good i am making it for sure!!

  2. I make this every summer too since my daughter and husband are huge lemonade fans… I too add ginger.. i think ginger and lemon go so well together and remind me of sugarcane juice 🙂

  3. Refreshing and perfect. I was wondering how long can I store it. But I guess if I make it it won't last for over 3 days. I love lemonade with ginger 🙂

    I have an award for you. please collect it from my blog. 🙂

    • thanks for sharing the award with me. Even the lemonade got over in 3 days at my place, but normally when preserved properly , this will stay for a month

    • Even i feel rolling boil is enough if we make in small quantities. My perimma makes in bulk and store for a month as they have a few lemon trees in their house

  4. Really i Love this!!!!!!

    As i was not well known about the ready made storage of the stuff but now i will make a lot of it and store for at about 7 days.

    So when feel to have refreshingly stuff will opt for this.

    Thanks for the update.
