Refreshing Maple Lemonade
Recipe Type:: Beverages
Prep time:: 
Total time:: 
Serves:: 1 glass
The practical benefit of maple syrup for lemonade is that it mixes with the cold water instantly, whereas sugar has to first be dissolved by boiling into a syrup first. The flavor benefit is indescribable…you just have to experience it yourself to understand the uplifting combination. One large juicy lemon or two limes will typically provide enough fresh juice to make a single serving. While fresh juice is always preferable, bottled organic juice will do in a pinch.
  • 3 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 8 oz water
  • several ice cubes
  1. In a single glass or large pitcher, stir well with a tall spoon.
  2. Bottoms up!
