Directions: To make the simple syrup for this recipe, combine the boiling water and sugar, stirring to dissolve the sugar in the water. Let the simple syrup sit for a few minutes, so it can cool to room temperature.
I like my lemonade a touch on the lemony side, so I add some pulp and sometimes lemon zest to my lemonade. Depending on the size and juiciness of your lemons, you may need less than 8. I like to use about 1 1/4 cup of lemon juice for the proportions in this recipe.
In a pitcher, combine the syrup with 7 cups of water and the lemon juice. Add vodka to the lemonade, you control how much to add to the mixture, add a bit then taste, and repeat as necessary. Add ice and stir. Serve in tall glasses, add lemon wheels for garnish.
