Ted’s Montana Grill Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

A tall cool glass of fresh squeezed lemonade is the perfect refreshing summer drink and Ted’s Montana Grill makes a great one.   If you’re like me, you don’t make fresh squeezed lemonade at home very often because you don’t have enough lemons and it’s kind of a pain to squeeze them.  Treat yourself on this one though because the flavor of fresh is worth the extra effort.  For a special party or a picnic, serve the lemonade in a clear pitcher with lots of fresh lemon slices and it looks very festive.  I’m thirsty now, how about you?

TIP: For extra juice and ease of squeeze, put the lemons in the microwave for 1 minute.

Ted’s Montana Grill Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 10 lemons)
2 cups sugar
5 1/2 cups cold water
crushed ice

1. Place sugar and 2 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.  Cook, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.  Remove sugar syrup from heat and let cool.

2. In a large pitcher, mix together cooled sugar syrup, cold water, and lemon juice until well combined.  Serve over ice.
