Homemade Lemonade
  • 1 ½ Cups Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice (approximately 10 lemons)
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 5 Cups Water
  1. Combine 1 Cup sugar and 1 Cup of water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved, approximately 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. While sugar water is boiling, squeeze 1 ½ cups of lemon juice. (Use a reamer or juicer.)
  3. In a large pitcher, combine the cooled sugar syrup, lemon juice and 4 cups of cold water.
  4. Taste for tartness. If too tart, add a cup of water. Remember when the lemonade is served over ice, the ice will dilute the lemonade.
