Ready In:


  • 4 cups water
  • 4 large lemons
  • 4 tablespoons honey (or to taste, I don't use too much sweetener, preferring a tangy drink)


  • (This makes fairly concentrated lemonade; if you want more dilute lemonade use 1/2 or 3/4 of the amount of lemon and honey used, in proportion to the water i. e. 3 lemons and 3 tablespoons of honey to 4 cups of water. If the proportion of lemon to water or).
  • Place the water in a jug.
  • Squeeze juice from lemons into water and add honey.
  • Mix all three ingredients together thoroughly and chill before serving (if not using cold water already).

    This is nice and I like that it uses no sugar, but to kick it up to 5 stars in taste I added a dash of orange blossom water to my serving which is really good.

    A lovely flavour and we really enjoyed this variation on lemonade. I would recommend adding a little hot water to the honey to soften it slightly before adding to the lemonade, to save some stirring! Thanks Goldcrest!

    This is very refreshing and we loved it today with our lunch! Worked in the garden and it was just the thing to soothe our dry throats! Yummy I did add a tad of sugar...guilty..but the honey didn't melt as easily as I hoped, so in went a tad of sugar! The flavor was incredibly good! Jelly :)

    This is a very nice and tasty lemonade, and so much healthier than that commercial sugar-laden stuff. My tip would be to not squeeze the lemons directly into the water as stated, especially if you have kids. Even if you remove the seeds you can see before you squeeze the lemons, you will still end up with seeds in your juice when you squeeze them. I just squeezed the juice into a measuring cup, removed the remaining seeds and then added juice to the jug. I will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

    Easy to make although it takes a bit of stirring to get the honey to dissolve. Bit sour for my tastes but I'm sure there are plenty who will prefer it this way.
