- 3/4 cup lemon juice
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2 cups hot tap water
- Cold tap water to fill the pitcher
To prepare begin by combining the hot water and honey in a 2-quart pitcher. Stir until the honey is dissolved. Add the lemon juice and enough cold water to fill the pitcher. Stir and stir and serve over ice.
I use bottled lemon juice for this most often, but fresh lemon juice is far superior. A good compromise is to add a few slices from a fresh lemon to the finished pitcher. This adds a fresh taste that is almost as good as lemonade made with fresh squeezed juice.
