Zest of 3 lemons
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cup boiling water
Juice of 3 lemons
Place the lemon zest and sugar in a glass bowl. Pour the boiling water over them, stir. Put it aside to become tepid. Leave it in the refrigerator until it is cold enough. Add the lemon juice. Place a strainer with a paper towel or fine muslin or filter.
Serve the Turkish Lemonade while it is still cold on hot summer days:)
*When you purchase a lemon, choose the thin-skin ones. To make the lemon more juicy, press and roll over on the counter with your palm before cutting.
