Honey Lemonade

1 1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup honey (12 oz)
8 cups water

Note: this is a large batch so squeeze the lemons before anything else. If you have less lemon juice, adjust as you see fit.

Mixing tips: Honey does not dissolve easily in cold water, but does dissolve easier in lemon juice. Pour lemon juice into your mixing container then pour honey and stir.

Add cup of water and keep stirring until honey is completely dissolved, then add remaining 7 cups of water.

Add ice, enjoy.

Spice up this recipe by using different varieties of honey. Orange Blossom is a great option, try Buckwheat if you’re feeling adventurous. Both impart unique flavors into the lemonade.
