Perfectly accurate title, Bev. I had printed out this recipe some time ago but only used it this weekend. "Looking forward" to 5 hours of yardwork in 90 degree heat (and 90% humidity), I mixed this up early in the morning. By the time we were ready for our first work break, it was cold and OH so refreshing. I am not a carbonation fan, so used the store brand club soda (not as much "punch" as the brand names), but will try the better stuff next time. The soda neutralizes ALL of that lemon & you end up with the best, most thirst-quenching drink I've had in a long long time. Definitely give this stuff a try!
I am a big lemonade fan (in fact I would say connoisseur except I am not sure how to spell connoisseur). This lemonade is the best I have ever tasted! I have on occasion had lemonade similar to this in restaurants but this is clearly the best. Please note that it is not fair to this lemonade if the first time you try it you are not HOT and THIRSTY. So let's be FAIR!
I made this for my BBQ and it was gone when I looked in the cooler. IT must have been good, the pop and punch was passed over for it.
WOW(Caps intended!), Auntie Bev'll! "Heaven in a pitcher" indeed this is- you should be "CROWNED" - "THE LEMONADE QUEEN" for this! I halved the recipe and made this early today morning using 1 can of 'Everest' brand of Club Soda(355ml) and 1 can of 'Krest' brand of Club Soda (a little over 300 ml). "WOW WOW WOW" - I'm not saying it, I'm just echoing what our AC technicians had to say, when after slogging over our broken down central air conditioner this entire "day", I handed them a glass each of this refreshing drink. They were thanking me endlessly and I was mentally passing on all the "Thank You's" to YOU:) My bro. says he wants to have this on his 18th Birthday(coming up on 24th Nov!) for his friends at his party! THANK YOU A THOUSAND TIMES, you're amazin, simply amazing, just GREAT!
You've got another winner here!! My family loves lemon shake ups and this reminded us of a lemon shake up soda!! Refreshing describes this perfectly!! We served these in tall frozen glasses with straws along with hamburgers off the grill, a perfect summer night meal!! Thanks for another great recipe :)
I have to get one of those lemon squeezer-thingies, so I can make this more easily! It is so good. I used Splenda instead of sugar and it turned out great. Now that I have diabetes, this will be my special drink, since I can't have my green tea with honey any more and I hate diet sodas!! My only problem is keeping the rest of the family away from this!!
Club soda in lemonade is a wonderful innovation! This recipe is so easy to make in any quantity you want-1 part sugar, 1 part lemon juice -8 parts club soda & you're done. I have made twice now. Next time I will try with Splenda to see if that works for my carb watching friends. Thanks Bev...I don't think I will buy the frozen stuff anymore. This is just too good and too easy!
I loved this! DH and son didn't because they like the junk powder mix out of a can, but I appreciate good, refreshing lemonade. Thanks Bev!
This is absolutely delicious. I used splenda instead of sugar, and it was just great. Best darn lemonade I've ever had!! Thanks Bev
Delicious and refreshing. When we used to live in Germany, there was a simliar tasting carbonated lemonade we used to buy regularly. I am so happy to have this recipe as the taste is nearly a match. I used 6 huge lemons in this to get the juice, plus one extra for garnish.
