Fresh lemonade with a little vanilla oompf!
For the simple syrup:
Slice the vanilla bean in half and with the back of your knife scrape out all the seeds.
Bring sugar, water, vanilla bean and pod, lemon peel and salt to boil on your stove. After sugar dissolves, I gently simmer 5-10 minutes to really get the lemon peel flavor in there.
Remove from heat, strain through a few layers of cheesecloth set over a large measuring cup and cool. You can speed up the process by placing the measuring cup in a large bowl surrounded by ice.
For the lemonade:
Once the syrup has cooled; add it to a large pitcher along with the 8-10 cups of water and strained lemon juice. Garnish with a few lemon slices.
Pour in a tall glass over ice and sip.
