Making fresh lemonade is becoming one of my new favorite things to do. Not only is it a great summertime drink that cools you down, but it is also super easy to make and add different variations to. With summer barbecues in full swing, you’ll have the perfect place to bring your fresh squeezed thyme lemonade. People will be wondering how you got such a flavorful lemonade and will be begging you for the recipe, guaranteed.
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 bunch thyme sprigs I used about 10 sprigs, but remember that the more you use, the stronger the thyme flavor will be.
- 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 1/2 cups water
- enough ice to fill the pitcher
- Combine water, sugar, and thyme in a saucepan on medium high heat. Bring the sugar syrup to a boil, then turn off the heat and let it cool. You can put the syrup into the fridge to help it cool down faster.
- Combine fresh lemon juice and water in a pitcher. Stir in the simple syrup and add enough ice to fill the pitcher. Taste the lemonade to make sure it is not too sweet or too sour.
- Serve chilled or over ice.
