Quick and easy and you do not have to keep fresh lemons on hand! I make this all year long and I double the recipe, making a gallon at the time. Hope you enjoy it! You can make this using Splenda too, but sugar is better to me. Recipe has been edited to correct the amount of water. One recipe makes 1/2 gallon (2 quarts). This does not taste like real lemonade. I guess we have acquired a taste for it, probably because it is so easy!
- 1 orange (navel is best)
- 1 package kool aid lemonade
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice concentrate (I use Real Lemon and use 1 capful)
- 2 quarts water
- Mix all ingredients except the orange in a one quart container.
- Cut the orange into 4-6 slices.
- DO NOT PEEL OR SQUEEZE THE ORANGE!
- Drop the orange slices into the lemonade and stir.
- Serve cold.
- I still only use one orange even if I double the recipe.
Just 2 more (and that's it, I promise) things that people from the south love...a cold, sweet drink dripping with lemon or in this case, faux lemon. The other...the ability to be truly sorry, even while they're in the middle of committing their sins.
We thought this was pretty good. Certaintly easy and quick. I had two glasses, and DH drank the rest of the pitcher. I liked it better the next day, you could really taste the oranges in it. The only thing is I think I will cut back on the sugar for my taste. DH might disagree with that, so we'll see. Thanks for posting.
I really enjoyed this. I frequently make Kool-Aid lemonade using Splenda instead of sugar. Adding the lemon juice concentrate and orange slices really added some extra flavor. I used 2 Tablespoons of Real Lemon for the concentrate. Also, the orange slices are yummy to eat after the lemonade is gone.
