This was so simple to make. A hint to get the most juice from your lemons, roll them on the counter top for a while and then squeeze. I also cut up two limes and added them to the pitcher of lemonade. Fantastic drink. Very refreshing.

Perfect! It took 4 regular size lemons to make about a cup and a half juice. Just the right amount of tart and sweet. Thank you!

We use less water (5 ½ cups) and less sugar (3/4 cup) for a tarter lemonade. Delicious! :)

This is a good basic recipe for one of my favorite drinks! I served it over ice and delicious! Good recipe.

Delicious. My 4 lemons only netted me 1/2 cup lemon juice, so I adjusted the water & sugar accordingly. (The lemons were organic & tend to be on the smaller side.) Also, I made a simple syrup by boiling the sugar with a couple of cups of filtered water and letting it cool on the stove - that stops the sugar from separating. Thanks for posting!

Love this lemonade! I also slice open a lemon and hand pick the juicy pulp and add it to the pitcher. It adds a little "texture" and random "sour bites" that are oh so yummy!

Very Good! I just tried this recipe with Lemon Juice (bottled) since I didn't have any lemons and was craving lemonade :) Tasted as is great. I also added around 1/4 Cup extra of Sugar and I also Steeped Raspberry Tea in an 8oz Glass of boiling water and added to the mix (used 8 reg sized Tea Bags), Both taste wonderful thank you for the recipe and the inspiration to work with what I had on hand. Update: Made the recipe as is and tastes so fresh and wonderful. The children love it.

This really hit the spot when I got a late night craving for lemonade (and no, I'm not expecting!) It was quick, easy, & very tasty. took about 4 large lemons to get the 1 1/2 cups of juice required. Thanks, DiB!
