Ingredients

Lemon Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup [200 g] sugar
  • 1 cup [240 ml] water
  • 1 cup [240 ml] fresh lemon juice

    Method

    To make the lemon simple syrup

    In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Stir in the lemon juice.

    To finish the lemonade, stir the orange blossom water into the lemon simple syrup to form a concentrate. To serve, fill six tall glasses with ice. Pour 4 oz [120 ml] of the lemon syrup–orange blossom concentrate into each glass, top with 4 oz [120 ml] of the club soda or chilled water, and stir. Garnish with the mint leaves or orange blossoms, or both, if desired. Store any leftover concentrate in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
