The taste was excellent, and it really wasn't difficult to make at all. My stepdaughter and I did this one afternoon, and everything turned out great; the only change we made was to add more hot water to dissolve the sugar; the amount called for was not quite enough. Very good taste, especially with the lemon zest. Excellent recipe we'll use often.
My favourite lemonade recipe is essentially the same as this. Allowing the sugar to absorb the lemon oils is what makes it so delicious. The syrup is quite concentrated so a little goes a long way. I usually use the zest of 4 lemons, their juice and 1 cup of boiling water and 1 cup sugar. It's good old fashioned lemonade. Use mineral water to dilute the syrup and you get a great fizzy drink.
It was hot the other day and I decided to make some lemonade. This really quenched our thirst and was awesome!
This was awesome!! it was REALLY refreashing!
FANTASTIC!!! Added some oranges because we didn't have enough lemons. I think I'll be making this for my daughters birthday party!!!
My parents went like wow when they dranked it! :)
Really nice lemonade. Used a potato peeler to get the zest off. No white comes off if you do it in a light pressure zig zag. After it chilled the children loved the zest sprinkled with more sugar.
I made this with limes instead of lemosn and it was the best limeade i've ever had! sooo good!
complicated recipe but cool.
