This recipe came from a late 30's era cookbook that belonged to my grandmother. Making the syrup is more time consuming, but it makes the best lemonade, because the sugar has been heated and disolved

  • 2 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups sugar syrup (recipe follows)
  • 8 cups water


  1. To make the syrup, gently boil 4 cups sugar and 4 cups of water for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour into a clean container and refrigerate.
  3. To mix lemonade, combine all ingredients, and chill.
  4. Add freshly sliced lemon rind.
  5. I have also prepared this recipe using"Splenda" instead of sugar--it came out a little too sweet for my tastes, so I add extra lemon juice.
