Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Cups water
  • 1 1/2 Cups fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bottle Champagne or Sparkling Wine ((for a non-leaded version substitute for Ginger ale, Sparkling Apple Cider, Sparkling Cranberry Juice or Sparkling White Grape Juice).)
  • Thin citrus slices (for garnish)

Note

This version can be turned into an Arnold Palmer version. Just substitute 2 of the cups of water with your favorite tea. The Sweet Simple syrup will provide enough sweet for the tea and lemonade.

Directions

Step 1
In a small saucepan, put your sugar and 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Allow to cook for 1 minute to allow all the sugar to dissolve. Turn off the heat, and allow the sugar syrup to cool completely.
Step 2
In a large picture, combine the cooled sugar syrup and the lemon juice and the remaining 2 cups of water and mix completely.
Step 3
To serve, fill a Champagne flute halfway with the lemonade and top with the Champagne (or substitute). Garnish with one lemon slice.
