Ingredients

For the Lemonade

  • 7 lemons
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cups ice
  • 2 sprigs mint, optional

Directions

Step 1 Of 7
1
Pre-heat grill to high heat.
2
Pour 1/2 cup of sugar onto a plate and shake lightly to spread evenly across plate.
3
Cut 6 of the lemons in half and press lemon halves, flesh side down, into sugar so that it sticks.
4
Place flesh side of lemons on the grill for 5 to 6 minutes until sugar has caramelized. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
5
Juice lemons into a ½ gallon pitcher over a mesh strainer.
Hot Tip
If you don’t have a juicer or fine mesh strainer, hand squeeze lemons over a bowl, pulp side up to keep the seeds out of your lemonade.
6
Slice the last lemon. Add remaining sugar, water, ice and lemon slices. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
7
Muddle mint and stir into lemonade for an added boost of flavor.
