Lemons must be at room temperature before squeezing out the juice. For pink lemonade add in a few drops of red food colouring, and for honeyed lemonade substitute liquid honey for the sugar, this is a wonderful drink on a hot summer day!

Delicious! There is nothing like real lemonade. I didn't add the food coloring and added just a touch less sugar than indicated, but otherwise enjoyed the recipe as written
