I like my lemonade more tart than sweet. Adjust the amount of water and sugar to your taste.


  1. Add sugar and boiling water to a pitcher; stir until sugar dissolves.
  2. Add lemon juice and cold water; stir to mix.
  3. Chill for several hours and serve over ice.
  4. Note: I put lemon slices into the pitcher.

Yum! I also added about 2 1/2 to 3 Tbsp raspberry puree to it and made raspberry lemonade. What an awesome drink for summer barbecues! Thanks for sharing!

Our group of four rate this 4 stars (x2) and 5 stars (x2). Swapping frozen fruit for ice will be a nice variation. I look forward to making this refreshing drink again.

Pretty Darn Good. I didn't have fresh lemons on hand so I used Real Lemon Juice. Thanks!
