Lemonade is a summer stand-by. This recipe works with both lemon and lime juice and it tastes way better when its fresh.

Makes 6 cups


1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup lemon juice
2-3 cups water


  1. Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
  2. While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
  3. Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 2-3 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength.
  4. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
    Serve with ice, sliced lemons.

Serve with

Passion fruit lemonade tea
