Recipe for fresh citron pressé


Happy labor day, friends! What better treat to close out summer than fresh-squeezed lemonade? 

Well, mine was more akin to the French citron pressé, which actually tastes like lemons instead of just sugar 😉 This recipe was super easy –

~heat 1 quart of water with 3/4 cup of sugar on medium heat

~when sugar is completely dissolved, add an additional quart of water and take off heat

~while the sugar water is cooling, avail yourself of the opportunity to squeeze the heck out of about 15 to 20 lemons

~add sugar water and stir

Serve with lots of ice and garnish with fresh mint or basil. Enjoy!
