You may have made traditional lemonade before, but this batch has something a little different – maple syrup instead of sugar! It’s the Flatbread style, and it’s become our style. Back in the day when Regina, Curtis and I all worked at Flatbread, having a server make you a lemonade was a glorious thing! It has since been a fun treat to make at home and we’re excited for you guys to give it a try!
Your preference of sweet or tart lemonade will guide your lemon juice, maple syrup and water ratios. I’ve only ever seen or personally made this mixture one drink at a time, so grab about 2-4 lemons per cup, your jar of maple syrup and a pitcher of water – then get to mixin!
Cut and squeeze the juice of 2-4 lemons into glass. Pour in desired maple syrup (enough to coat the bottom is usually a good start). Next add water and stir! At this point you can add more maple syrup or lemon juice to even out your drink to your liking.
And enjoy! 🙂
