Orange/Lemon Water

This recipe came from Bekah by way of lemonade and then Kie mentioned she does the same thing with orange extract and I love both...

For one pitcher size
1 1/4 C sugar
1/2 Tbsp citric acid (found at any health food store)
1/2 Tbsp lemon or orange extract
2 quarts water
lemons or oranges for garnish

Put in pitcher and mix up. Very refreshing on a hot summer day!

I made this for my piano recital today and it was great! I got lots of compliments. I couldn't find citric acid though- any suggestions? I found a lemon powder that was mostly citric acid and it worked fine, but I'd like to find the real stuff.

We made the orange water for Sunday dinner tonight and my family couldn't get enough of it. I ended up making 3 gallons of it!

Bekah said you can get citric acid at the pharamcy at any grocery store. I have found luck at both of our local health food stores so I would try it there by all the herb products.
