Ingredients
  

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp flavoring I made bubblegum

Instructions
 

  • Gently simmer water and sugar in a medium saucepan for about 5-6 minutes. Sugar should be completely dissolved.
  • Pour into a bowl and add lemon juice and flavoring. Stir and cool.
  • Chill in fridge for about 2 hours.
  • Pour into ice cream maker and turn on for about 20 minutes. Water ice will begin to form up.

  • A wooden scraper is handy (and traditional for getting water ice in your mouth.) A spoon works great too:)
