Vanilla Lemonade Recipe

Vanilla Lemonade

This elegant lemonade from The City Bakery can be made less tart by adding more water or sugar until it suits your taste.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups water
3 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 16 lemons)
1 vanilla bean

In a pitcher or container, whisk together the sugar and water until the sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice and stir. Slit the vanilla bean down the middle lengthwise and, using your fingertips, scrape the contents of the bean into the mixture, dispersing the seeds. Discard the bean and strain out any pieces that remain, other than the seeds. To serve, pour into ten ounce glasses filled with ice. Makes six servings.
