This adds an interesting spring twist to a lovely warm weather drink. Even if the snow hasn’t completley melted it reminds us that summer is right around the corner!
1 cup sugar
2 TBSP maple syrup
2 1/3 cup water
1 1/5 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 TSP lemon zest
Combine sugar, syrup and water in a pot. Heat over medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved in the water.
Remove from heat and add lemon juice and zest. Stir and allow cooling for 20 minutes.
Pour the contents of the pot into a large pitcher and add to it an equal amount of water. Allow to chill for at least an hour before serving.
