With the hot summer weather upon us I decided to start making Lemon Shake-Ups. Yes – like the ones at the fair. Well – maybe not exactly like the ones at the fair but they are really good!
Anyway – I thought I would share my recipe with you.
1 1/2 C. Water
1/4 C. Sugar
To make the lemon syrup – take 1/2 cup of water and the sugar and add to a pot. Over med heat, stir until the sugar is melted. Remove from heat and add juice from 1 1/2 lemons. Cut the other 1/2 lemon in 2 and place in fridge.
Take the syrup you just made and chill. When syrup is chilled add to a cocktail shaker. Add 1 C. water that was left, Ice, and piece of lemon. Shake and serve!
I have been making the syrup in advance. You can chill or freeze it.
