Lemonade by the Glass
I'm looking for the perfect lemonade-by-the-glass recipe. I have simple syrup and lemons. What proportion of lemon juice to simple syrup (2 parts sugar/one part water) to water should I use?
Start with a shot of simple syrup, juice of half a lemon, ice and top off with water. Add syrup or more juice to taste. Keep in mind, that lemons vary in their tartness, so you may have to adjust as you go along.
Now that you have your syrup you can play with limeade and orangade as well.
A straw is mandatory, for me --makes it taste better :)

Thanks, everybody. I do like the sparkling water idea - now, why did I never come up with that. An inexpensive prosecco is probably not too bad either.
