Lemonade

A basic recipe from author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone for fresh lemonade that isn’t syrupy-sweet. For a lighter body, add more water. We recommend trying in our Arnold Palmer drink recipe, or making a variation with our refreshing Pink Lemonade.

Game plan: The lemonade can be made up to 8 hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator. This is a straight nonalcoholic version.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine lemon juice and 1 cup each rich simple syrup and water in a large pitcher and stir well.
  2. 2Taste and add more water and syrup as needed. Pour over ice in an iced tea or cooler glass (a taller version of a highball), garnish with a mint sprig, and serve.
