Cooking With Friends Kitchen
2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (About 16 Lemons)
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
In a medium sized saucepan, bring 2 cups of water and 1 ½ cups of sugar to a boil. Turn heat down to low and stir for a minute or two until the sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside to cool. Wash and then slice 16 lemons in half and, using a lemon press or electric hand juicer, squeeze lemons until you have 2 cups of lemon juice. Mix the lemon juice together with the simple syrup and transfer to freezer safe containers. Tupperware makes a set of tumblers called a “Tumbler Bouquet” with lids that work perfectly. http://order.tupperware.com/coe/app/home
