We have started having showers though not daily and am loving the climate. Hope this continues for the coming days as well. My ammama used to make this during summers and I so so love this.Last week got the recipe from amma and made this lemonade syrup - Its quick, easy and the best thirst quencher during summers.

Serving Suggestion:
  • Take 1/4 cup of sugar lemonn syrup and add 3/4 cup water to it - Adjust according to your liking.

Lemonade Recipe
My Notes:
  • Dont add lemon juice when the sugar syrup is hot, cool completely and then add.You can even lachi powder or ginger juice to the syrup to enhance the flavour.
  • Dont squeeze lemon very hard and take the juice as it will give a bitter taste.
  • This keeps well for even a month when refrigerated.No need to freeze it.
