FRESH HOMEMADE LEMONADE
6 cups water, divided
⅓ cup raw honey
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (approx. 4-6 large lemons)
Soak lemons in hot water for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine 1 cup of the water with raw honey and cook over medium-high heat until the honey is dissolved, then transfer out of the saucepan and allow to cool. Set aside.
Roll lemons and squeeze over a stainless-steel mesh colander to separate seeds and large pulp.
Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice to the bottom of a pitcher, followed by the simple honey syrup, and then fill the pitcher with the remaining 5 cups of water. Stir to combine.
Chill or serve over ice and enjoy!
