Homemade Lemonade (Women's Day)

Classic Lemonade Recipe

I made this the other day and it was so good. Tart! So if you like it sweet you may want to add more sugar. 


    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 10 lemons)
    • 2 lemons


1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer (do not stir) until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

2. In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, cooled sugar syrup and 4 cups cold water. Taste the lemonade for tartness: If it’s too tart, add 1 to 2 cups more cold water (keep in mind that you’ll want to add ice, which will dilute the lemonade). Refrigerate until chilled.

3. Just before serving, thinly slice the lemons or cut into wedges, stir them into the lemonade and add ice.
