Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups water, plus more as needed
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 24 lemons)
  • Lemon wheels or wedges, for garnish
Directions

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, honey, and 2 cups water and place over medium-high heat. Cut the vanilla bean in 1/2 lengthwise, then, using the back of the knife, scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and add to the saucepan, along with the pod. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 4 or 5 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Put the lemon juice into a gallon jug or pitcher. Pour the sugar syrup through a strainer into the pitcher and discard the pod. Add water to equal 1 gallon and stir well.

Serve over ice with lemon wheels or wedges.
