Aphrodite's Perfect Lemonade

Honoring the Greek goddess Aphrodite
goddess of love and beauty.



Aphrodite's Perfect Lemonade

1 cup sugar
1 cup water (for the simple syrup a.k.a. nectar)
1 cup lemon juice (4-6 lemons)
3 to 4 cups cold water

All goddesses are very busy with their divine responsibilities. That's  why we need to start with a simple syrup to make sure this comes out right the first time, every time.

Since Aphrodite is famous for heating things up, the first step is to heat the sugar and 1 cup water in a small sauce pan until the sugar is dissolved completely. This disperses the sugar so each sip is as sweet as the nectar the goddess partakes of regularly.

Then extract the juice until you have a cup. (4 to 6 lemons required).

Pour the juice and simple syrup into a crystal pitcher. As the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite would surely want her offering to look as perfect as it tastes!

Add cold water (3 or 4 cups) depending on your taste. Refrigerate before serving.

Though Aphrodite's disposition is usually quite sweet, it can sour on you and turn quite icy at times, especially if you refuse her bidding. Therefore it's a good idea to honor her by serving this drink with sliced lemons and ice.
