1 cup water
1 cup sugar
6 lemons, zest and juice
5 L sparkling water
Using a really sharp peeler, peel off the outer layer of the lemon. Try to avoid the white part as best you can. Place the peels in a small pot.
Add water and sugar to the pot, bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar dissolves. Remove the pot from the heat, add the lemon juice, cover and let it steep and cool until room temperature.
Strain out the lemon peel and transfer the liquid gold into a bottle with a cap. Cover and keep the syrup in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
To make the lemonade simply combine 1 part syrup with 5 parts sparkling water. This ratio can be adjusted to suit your taste buds.
Now go out and start making some serious cash!
