Homemade Lemonade Syrup

I really love San Pellegrino Limonata, for fun I decided to make a homemade alternative.


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 cups lemon juice (13-16 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoon grated lemon peel


-In a pot bring water to boil, dissolve sugar, and let cool.  Add lemon juice and peel, mix well. Cover and store in the refrigerator.

-For 1 serving, combine 1/4 cup of syrup with 1 cup cold soda water in a glass and stir well. For 8 servings, combine 1.5 cups of syrup and 5 cups cold soda water in a pitcher, stir well and serve.


This recipe is super addictive, great for cocktails, and freezes well. Can't wait to make this again soon.  

I was feeling really inspired so I upgraded the drink by adding a splash of rosewater, raspberries, and a shot of vodka.


Mandatory Bailey Update 

Bailey found a bag big enough to crawl into. 

A one point Roxy tried to climb in to join him ..... that didnt go so well for her.
