Add vodka to it, and you've got Mikes Hard Lemonade! Another Cook's Illustrated recipe. Look for large, slightly soft lemons—they tend to be extra-juicy. Store the lemonade in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Great lemonade recipe! We used Splenda, which worked perfectly. Very refreshing! Just the right sweetness to balance the lemon. (Side note - Bill likes Bombay Sapphire gin when he spikes his lemonade; whatever works for you!) Made by a Saucy Senorita for ZWT5.

    Cool and refreshing - it's almost 90 today - this hit the spot! I cut down to one serving, which called for 1/4 cup sugar I cut this almost in half and it's perfect. Made for ZWT5 by one of the Cooks With Dirty Faces.

    Made a full recipe for a backyard BBQ with friends today & everyone loved it! Very refreshing, easy to make & a perfect balance between sweet & tart. We brought vodka but alas, it's not a gluten free brand so we couldn't use it there. Next time we make it at home we'll test drive the hard lemonade. :) Thanks for sharing GW! Made & enjoyed for ZWT5 - Ali Baba's Babes.
