Lemon Shake-Up? Yes, Please!

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.

Serves 2

1 1/2 C. Water

2 Lemons

1/4 C. Sugar

Ice

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.
