Tarragon Lemonade Recipe

Come Party With Me: Beach Cleanup — Drinks

Tarragon Lemonade Recipe 2010-04-21 17:42:07

Ingredients

  1. 10 cups water
  2. 2 1/4 cups sugar
  3. 17 tarragon sprigs
  4. 6 cups fresh lemon juice, strained (from about 40 lemons), plus 12 thin lemon slices for garnish
  5. Salt
  6. Ice

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 4 cups of water with the sugar and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer over moderately high heat until reduced to 3 1/4 cups, about 25 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and add 5 of the tarragon sprigs. Let stand, stirring often, until cooled to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Discard the tarragon sprigs.
  3. In a large glass pitcher, combine the remaining 6 cups of water with the tarragon syrup and fresh lemon juice. Add a pinch of salt, stirring until it dissolves.
  4. Serve the tarragon lemonade over ice, garnished with the lemon slices and the remaining 12 tarragon sprigs.

Serves 12.
