  4. Add the sugar to the blender.
  5. Using the same cup, add 2 and a half cups of water.
  6. Blend it all up on a high speed for approx 10 seconds (The longer you blend it, the more bitter it becomes!) Don’t worry if there are still chunky bits in the mixture.

  9. Serve over ice with a slice of lemon!
