Toomer's Lemonade (according to some)

Toomer's Drugs in Auburn is famous for their lemonade.  Kent found this recipe that claims to be the one that is used at Toomer's.  We're not sure if it is, but it's definitely good!  And this time of year, cold lemonade always sounds good!

Toomer's Lemonade

Put 5 lbs. sugar in a gallon jug and fill the jug with water. Stir or shake until sugar dissolves and solution is clear. (Hot water makes the sugar dissolve more quickly.)

To make 1 gallon of lemonade, pour 1 pint of lemon juice and 2 pints of simple syrup in a gallon container.  Finish filling the container with water and ice. Stir.

To make one large lemonade (16-oz.), squeeze the juice of one lemon into a 16-oz. cup, add 4-oz. of simple syrup and finish filling with water and ice. Stir.

**Kent says, If you'd just like to make a 1 gallon mixture, use  2.5 cups of sugar, 2 cups of lemon juice (from about 15 lemons), and fill the rest of the gallon jug with water.

  1. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I worked at Toomer's and that's not the exact recipe. Close, but not it. Sorry!
