Step 1: The ingredients! yay
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 to 2 lemons, depending on size (also you might want organic, if you can get them!)
Soda water, less than you need to fill the biggest glass you've got!
Ice, as much as you like in your lemonade
one(or more) maraschino or other cherries, as well as as much of the syrup as you'll want to make it sweet and cherry-y enough
Other supplies are:
a small pot
a cutting board
a small, sharp knife
a wooden spoon
a tall glass
Step 2: Making the syrup!
-Put the sugar and water in the little pot together and mix them a little. Then add the lemon pieces, squeezing a bit to get some of the juices out.
-Heat at medium temperature till it starts to simmer and the sugar has dissolved.
Step 3: Pulling it all together!
-Add soda water and plenty of ice
-Then add the cherry syrup
-And garnish with cherries and lemon slice!
Yay! You have made a beautiful, yummy, yummy drink! Good for you!
