Cooking with Banshee: Party Time Lemonade

Summer is just a few weeks away, and the weather is starting to heat up.  Nothing is more refreshing on a hot day than a cold glass of homemade lemonade.  This drink is not the kind of thing you can buy from a stand run by the neighbor's kids.  This is lemonade with an adult twist.

Party Time Lemonade

Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups sugar
5 cups water, divided
Zest of one lemon
1 3/4 cups lemon juice
1 1/2 cups light rum

Directions:
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, lemon zest and 1 cup of water.  Cook over medium heat, stirring regularly, until the sugar is fully dissolved.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in the remaining water and the lemon juice.  Transfer to a pitcher.  Refrigerate.  When the mixture is cool, add the rum and stir.  Serve in a glass with ice.  Enjoy!
