Gourmet Lemonade

Gina sent me this post, and I highly recommend it! I tried the recipe for the gourmet lemonade and, despite unexpected ingredients, the result was entirely delicious!

OK, here's the text from the other website in case the link ever stops working:

Gourmet Lemonade Syrup Concentrate
As simple as gourmet comes, yeilding enough concentrate to make glass after glorious glass of this sweet, fresh lemonade with just a titch of added flavor for interest. How lovely is that?!
3 c. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
3 c. sugar
2 whole nutmeg
Dash of ground nutmeg
1/2 vanilla bean (one with the seeds already scraped out)
1/4 tsp. almond flavoring
In a large saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups of the lemon juice and all of the sugar. Add the whole nutmeg, dash of nutmeg, vanilla bean and almond flavoring. Stir together over medium-high heat, just until the sugar dissolves. Remove and stir in remaining lemon juice. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
To make lemonade: add three parts of water to one part of lemonade concentrate.
To host a lemonade party: Serve glasses of lemonade with Pure Fruit Icecubes, allowing guests to mix and match their own flavors. Serve with boba tea straws, if you can find them, giving guests the option of sucking up all the fruit hunks of flavored ice they’ve dropped into their lemonade.
