Powdered mixes no more when you try this Homemade Lemonade recipe. It can be made in minutes and it is about as simple and delicious as it comes. Only 4 ingredients and one of them is water! Enjoy a cool glass of this sweet drink on a hot summer day!
Does the spring air having you remember the hot days of summer? It does me. I am ready for sun, fun and all things yummy like this homemade lemonade and best baked beans.
In fact, most outdoor BBQ's need the basics like grilled bacon brussels sprouts or a good easy cucumber salad. A cool, refreshing drink hits the spot. Of course, pair this lemonade with Lemon Brownies or Lemon Cream Poke Cake and your taste buds will thank you!
- Lemon juice
- Gallon pitcher
It doesn't get much easier than that. Mix, add, pour, drink.
The lemon juice, I feel is important to get a brand you trust. I don't have a problem with Aldi's lemon juice brand as we feel it has a good flavor.
You certainly don't want one that you feel has a bitter taste. Since it is a major part of this homemade lemonade, you need to like your lemon juice.
A watered down lemonade is not a very tasty lemonade. That is why it is important to be aware of your pitcher size and adjust accordingly.
The pitcher size in this recipe is 1 gallon, like this pitcher.
If you use a smaller pitcher, you will want to add a little less lemon juice and sugar.
The result of mixing the lemon juice, water and sugar together is a delicious and simple lemonade recipe your family will love.
No long complicated recipe. No long and drawn out post. Simple recipe calls for simple instructions.
Add. Mix. Pour. Stir. Chill. Drink.
As good as it gets.
Pin it for later!
I would let the lemonade chill for at least an hour before serving. Then you will have nice cold lemonade. You could always add ice to the glass if you are in a time crunch.
Yes you can. It will have a different taste to it and you will want to adjust the amount accordingly.
