Barley Lemon Water

I love Barley. In addition to all the health benefits of Barley it is also perfect summer thirst quencher. It was very hot and humid today and wanted to have some cooler. Normally I buy barley drink but this time wanted to try at home. When I was carrying my 2nd son I used to drink Barley water almost every day. Try this summer cooler at home

Barley - 1/4 cup ( I have used Holland Barley. China Barley will work too)
Sugar - 100g or to taste ( I have used brown sugar)
Water - 8 Cups
Lemon Juice - 1 tablespoon
Few Lemon Pieces

Wash the Barley till you see clear water. And cook it with 8 cup of water till it is cooked and water is milky. It took about 20 mins for me in medium flame. Add brown sugar and let it boil till it is dissolved. Let it boil for another 5 mins. Switch it off. Add lemon juice and mix it well. 
Cool it and enjoy this refreshing drink
