Easy Homemade Lemonade!

About 3 months ago I discovered this.


It’s 100% organic lemon juice!


With the price of lemons and the amount of juice you get out of one, this to me is a great deal. It’s $2.99 for 12.5 fl. oz. Not to mention it makes making lemonade a snap!

Here’s a recipe that I’ve been using.

  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3 to 4 cups cold water (to dilute)

1 Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.

2  Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes.

Serve with ice, sliced lemons. Serves 4-6.

This is such a special summertime treat! Enjoy!
