  • 2 cups water

To make sugar syrup:

  1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water on a medium-high heat and let it boil for 10 minutes.
  2. If you are planning to make the lemonade immediately, place 2 cups of the sugar water in the freezer or refrigerator while you do the rest of the prep.
  3. The recipe makes about 2 cups syrup. When stored in a tightly sealed glass jar, sugar syrup keeps indefinitely in the refrigerator.
