Authentic Homemade Lemonade


Just like grandma used to make – my old-fashioned Homemade Lemonade! The perfect mix of sweet sugar and sour lemon, this is the ultimate cool refreshing drink for a hot summer’s afternoon! I think most parents end up looking for a real lemon lemonade recipe when their kids ask to set up a lemonade stall outside – I love it that kids still do that in my neighborhood every summer.

With this recipe, they would sell out for sure! I love making it anyway, it really reminds me of my childhood. Keep a lemonade pitcher in your refrigerator for when it’s hot, it will disappear in a flash I can promise you!

So, how to make Homemade Lemonade?

Steps to make Authentic Homemade Lemonade


Prepare the lemons


Place the lemons on a flat work surface and firmly roll them back and forth a couple of times (this helps release the juice inside the lemon).


Juice the lemons


Cut the lemons in half and juice them. You should end up with about 1 cup of juice.


Combine the ingredients


Add the lemon juice, sugar and water to a large pitcher and stir to combine. You can add a little more water to dilute the lemonade if it’s too sweet or too sour.


Chill the lemonade


Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill for a while and serve with ice.

Didn't think It'd actually taste good when i saw it my mouth instantly thought of something ultra sour but this actually tasted soothing and smooth.
