Delicious homemade lemonade garnished by a fluff of cotton candy to add just the right pinch of sweetness!
2 cups sugar
7 cups water, divided
12 whole lemons, juiced
Cotton candy (about a fist-size portion) to garnish each drink
Lemon slices for garnish
Heat 2 cups sugar with 3 cups of water in a saucepan on the stove until dissolved and set in the fridge to cool.
Pour the lemon juice into a large punch bowl. Pour in 3/4 of the syrup, then top off the bowl with ice. Pour the remaining 4 cups of water in and taste. If you’d like it a bit sweeter, add more syrup, if it needs to be diluted, add more water.
Add some lemon slices and about a fist-size dollop of cotton candy to each drink just before serving.
Remember that the cotton candy will add another level of sweetness to the lemonade. So if you’d like your lemonade more tart, go easier on the sugar.
Also, it works well to add the lemon slices to a shortened wooden skewer and then place the cotton candy at the top of the skewer to hold it just above the lemonade.
