    2. Now, every lemon is going to be a bit different, so we recommend alternating the syrup and water and tasting as you go.
    3. You want a lemonade that’s slightly tart and not too sweet, as the cold brew you add later will be slightly bitter and sweet on its own.
    4. Once you’ve got a lemonade flavor that you’re happy with, add ice to the cup and top up with cold brew.
    5. Give the drink a stir, and you’re ready to kick back and sip happy!
